STORRS, Conn. - The UConn men's tennis team came up short of their first win this spring, falling at Brown University, 5-2, Friday afternoon. The Huskies fall to 3-7 in dual match play and have dropped five-straight matches this spring.
UConn picked up a pair of singles wins from junior Wayne Harrell (East Windsor, Conn.) and sophomore Andrew Ginzberg (Woodbridge, Conn.).

At #6 singles, Ginzberg also fought his way to a three-set victory. Ginzberg won the first set over David Neff, 6-4, but dropped the second set 6-3. He answered with a 10-6 win in the third set tiebreak for his first victory of the spring season.
