March 30, 2013

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The DePaul men's tennis team dropped a pair of matches against nationally-ranked Middle Tennessee State and Troy on Saturday at the MT Shootout at the Buck Bouldin and Old Fort Tennis Centers.

The Blue Demons were defeated 4-0 in their early matchup against MTSU - ranked No. 43 in the ITA Poll, first in the tournament and the weekend's hosting school. In the day's second match, DePaul fell to Troy by the same score.

Two matches were suspended in third sets against the Blue Raiders, and DePaul went three sets in four-of-six matches in a close match against Troy. The Blue Demons could not pull out a point in either match, however, and dropped to 4-14 in dual match play with the setbacks.

DePaul will meet the winner of Illinois State and Florida Atlantic University in tomorrow's seventh-place match at 7:30 a.m. CT.
