Muncie, Ind. - The University of Illinois at Chicago men's swimming and diving team appears to be coming on, as the Flames knocked off Xavier, 80-59, but couldn't beat Ball State, losing, 93-45, at Ball State on Saturday afternoon.
For the women's team, it was a long day, as the Flames came up empty, dropping a pair of decisions. Ball State beat the Flames, 98-41, while the Musketeers defeated UIC's women, 88-50.
Newcomer Ari Bernstein picked-up the lone individual win of the day for the men's team winning the 100-yard butterfly in a swift 53.48.
