HOUSTON, Texas – The No. 33 nationally ranked/No. 1 seed Old Dominion men’s tennis team (17-6) defeated No. 8 seed UAB (12-10) by a 4-0 score in the Quarterfinals of the Conference USA Tournament on Friday afternoon.

“It was nice to get a clean 4-0 win to start the tournament,” said ODU head coach Dominik Mueller. “I think we came out with the right intensity in doubles and did a good job winning five first sets in singles after falling behind on a couple courts early. Tomorrow we will be challenged by a very good Southern Miss team. They are having a tremendous season themselves and I’m sure it will be battle we are ready for.”
