DAVIDSON, N.C. – The UNCG men's tennis team brings home another victory after winning its match against Davidson Sunday, 5-2.

"Hard fought doubles point," said head coach Thomas Mozur. "We came up big when it counted. Heading into singles we knew it would be a challenge and the guys stepped up and handled a tough Davidson team well." 

The Spartans won two out of three doubles matches to win the doubles point. 

Freshman James Dougherty (Melbourne, Australia) and sophomore Randy Phillips (Snellville, Ga. / Brookwood) took down Kevin Moore and Chris Mark, 8-3. 

Freshman Daniel Mack (Lakeland, Fla./Lakeland) and junior Ahmet Sarioglu (Ankara, Turkey/METU Development Foundation) won a close 9-8 (8-6) match against Ethan Kallick and Joe Schafer.

Sophomore Cameron Smith (Jamestown, N.C. / Ragsdale) and freshman Gaston Murray (Lake Worth, Fla. / Park Vista) fell to Robert Lightbourn and Nicky Kunz, 8-4. 

In singles play, Sarioglu dropped his match to Joe Schafer, 7-5, 6-2. 

Dougherty picked up an easy 6-1, 6-1 win against Kunz, while Murray came up short in his match against 6-4, 6-1 to Mark. 

Phillips fought to win his first set before taking the second match easily when he beat Lightbourn, 7-6, 6-0. 

Mack won in a quick 6-1, 6-1 match against Connor Evins, while Smith defeated Alex Howard, 6-4, 6-2.
