NEW ORLEANS - The 66th-ranked Tulane men's tennis team could not hold off the red hot 60th-ranked George Washington squad on Thursday afternoon, falling 4-0, at the City Park Pepsi Tennis Center.
George Washington (8-4) claimed its seventh straight win - all on the road - with their victory over the Green Wave (10-4).
"This match today was quite uncharacteristic of how we've been playing this year," Tulane head coach Mark Booras said. "But you can't take anything away from George Washington. They are a very solid team with a lot of experience who took it right to us from the start. We're looking forward to putting in some work the next couple of days to be ready for the weekend."
Tulane's lone bright spot in the match came from the 37th-ranked double team of Dominik Koepfer and Jao Chi-Shan who earned an 8-3 victory over No. 57 Francisco Dias and Julius Tverijonas on court one. The Green Wave pair are now 11-2 this spring.
The Green Wave will look to get back on track on Saturday against South Alabama at 1 p.m. CT at the City Park Pepsi Tennis Center.
