JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- The East Tennessee State University men's tennis team defeated UNC Greensboro, 5-2, in Southern Conference action today in ETSU's Mini-Dome. It was the Bucs' sixth consecutive win.

With the win, the Bucs earned at least a tie for the Southern Conference regular-season title. It was ETSU's 21st consecutive win against a Southern Conference opponent.

ETSU (17-7, 9-0 Southern Conference) opened the match by winning at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles to capture the doubles point. Ricardo Nava and Matt Keeter -- at No. 3 -- combined to win their 23rd doubles match of the season.

The Bucs won four of the six singles contests, including at No. 2 where Marcos Pavlovich dropped the first set but rebounded to earn his 32nd victory of the season. Other Buc winners were Gustavo Gomez, Roberto Fernandez and Juan Yannuzzi.
