April 16, 2004
Chicago, Ill.- The UIC men's tennis team split the singles slate against Horizon League rival Wisconsin-Green Bay on Friday afternoon, but the doubles point proved to be the difference as the Phoenix crept past the Flames, 4-3, at the UIC Outdoor Courts.
UIC (7-12, 2-2 Horizon League) is now entrenched in third place in the league following the loss to second-place UW-Green Bay (10-9, 4-1 Horizon League).
Paul Glendenning forced a tiebreaker against Eric Hines after dropping the first set, eventually taking the No. 4 singles contest in a tough 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-1 win.
Pat Zufan played extra tennis but took out Weiss in a solid 6-3, 4-6, 7-6(4) win.
Freshman Sean Kreymborg looked strong at the No. 6 slot, downing Scott Dickert in a 6-3, 6-1 win.
John Cincola was a late singles scratch due to injury, forcing UIC Head Coach Hans Neufeld to shuffle his lineup for the second straight Friday. Zarucki was unable to play in last Friday's match versus league-leading Butler.
