    Tempe, Ariz. - The UIC women's tennis team closed out a fantastic season on Saturday afternoon in the desert of Arizona, as the Flames were downed by #18 Arizona State, 4-0, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament at the Whiteman Tennis Center in Tempe.

    Arizona State grabbed the doubles point in a hurry with Mhairi Brown and Cindy Sureephong beating Ayca Gumuscu and Molly Smith, 8-3. In the No.3 match, the team of Joslynn Burkett and Megan Yeats defeated UIC's Athanasia Giannoulopoulou and Zvjezdana Malesevic, 8-2.

    In singles play it was more of the same for the Sun Devils as the nation's seventh-ranked player Adria Engel downed UIC's Nicole Derouin in the No.1 singles match, 6-0, 6-1. Dora Krstulovic beat Gumuscu, 7-5, 6-0, at No.2 singles, while ASU added the final victory in the fourth slot, with Sureephong defeating Malesevic, 6-1, 6-1.

    The Flames finish the ledger at 17-7 and as Horizon League Champions for the seventh consecutive season.

    Fresno State defeated San Diego State in the other first round match-up, which sets up a second round affair between ASU and the Bulldogs on Sunday.
