Fort Wayne, Ind.- The UIC men's tennis team posted their second shutout in as many days with an impressive 7-0 over host IPFW in Fort Wayne on Sunday afternoon.

With the win the Flames (8-7) moved over the .500 mark and clinched their third victory in their last four matches.

UIC captured the early lead thanks to two doubles wins, highlighted by a close 8-6 victory pulled out by Ivan Kovalev and Andy Lockhart over Landry Nzudie and Nabil Mourad Filho.

Eric Fey and Paul Glendenning teamed up for an 8-2 doubles win to give the Flames the point.

UIC then went on to sweep the singles slate with six straight-set wins. Kovalev blanked Nzudie at the top spot, 6-0, 6-0, to lead a relentless singles effort.

Sunday's win marked the team's second consecutive 7-0 win. The Flames downed Cleveland State by the same score on Saturday.

The Mastadons fell to 5-14.

The Flames return home for a doubleheader at the UIC Outdoor Courts next Saturday, April 9th. UIC hosts Horizon League rival Youngstown State at 9 a.m., followed by an afternoon match with IUPUI at 2 p.m.
