"They played really tough team from FSU today," assitant coach Brandon Wagner said. "I was impressed, they handeled themselves very well under pressure."
Over in the singles draw, freshman Sasha Gozun got two wins in straight sets to advance to the singles quarterfinal round to be played Monday.
"We had a good day today," Wagner said. "All of the guys played tough competition today and everyone competed well."
While not all of the USF men's tennis team ended the day with victories, Wagner is proud of what he's seen from his team this weekend.
"We're continuing to learn and build on what it means to be a team."
The doubles semifinal competition begins Monday at 9:30 am. Return to GoUSFBulls.Com for complete results.
