    With an 8-6 win at No. 2, Christopher Cole and Alan Reifer improved to 2-2 on the season in doubles, while Maurizio Feoli and Gautham Oroskar combined for the first time at No. 3 for an 8-5 win.

    Alexander Raa went to .500 at No. 1 with a 6-4, 6-0 win, and Isaac Lloveras did the same with a 6-0, 6-2 defeat at No. 3.  Rahul Kamath took the final win at No. 6 in a 6-7, 6-4, 10-8 decision to improve to 3-2 at the position.

    Saturday’s match is the third of the season at home for the Flames after going 1-1 in previous contests, with a 7-0 win against Chicago State and a 4-3 loss to Bradley.

    During its last match with Southern Illinois in the 2009 dual season, UIC fell 5-2 in Carbondale, Ill., while it captured a 4-2 win the season prior.
