LINCOLN, Neb. The DePaul men’s tennis team suffered a 5-2 loss at No. 67 Nebraska on Saturday.  Freshmen Bartosz Jozwiak and Ben Hartman gave the Blue Demons two victories in singles play at the Nebraska Tennis Center.

The No. 5 singles match saw Jozwiak edge Renato Melo in three sets.  The DePaul freshman took the first set, 6-4, before Melo evened the score with a 6-4 decision in the second frame.  Jozwiak sealed the match and gave the Blue Demons a point with a 6-4 triumph in the final set.

Hartman topped Karl Jones, 6-1, 6-4, in the No. 6 singles match.  With the victory, Hartman improves his dual-season singles record to a perfect 9-0.

Sophomore Vanja Grgec joined Jozwiak to give the Blue Demons their only doubles victory of the day.  The DePaul tandem knocked off Jones and Melo, 8-6, in the No. 3 match.
