CINCINNATI -- Xavier seniors Bobby Deye and Brian Starr each posted singles and doubles wins as they led Xavier to a 7-0 win over Bradley Friday night. With the win, XU improved to 9-9 on the season. For Deye and Starr, who were honored prior to the match, this was their last regular season match at Xavier.
"Tonight was a very good performance by our guys," said XU head coach Eric Toth. "Bradley's guys make a lot of balls and make you beat them, and we did a great job in singles of being aggressive at the right times to take control of points. It was also great to see Bobby Deye and Brian Starr play well in both singles and doubles in their last home match as Musketeers."
Deye defeated Hamish Weerasingh 6-3, 6-2 at No. 1 while senior cohort Starr downed Justin Abrams 6-0, 6-1.
Freshman Jimmy Roebker took home a win at No. 2 while fellow freshman Mesa Mei earned a win at No. 4. Sophomore Brandon MacDonald earned a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 3 and junior Patrick Bandy posted a 6-2, 6-0 win at No. 5.
