WALTHAM, Mass. -- No. 32 Brandeis University won four out of six singles matches to capture a 5-4 non-conference win over the No. 22 nationally ranked Bates men's tennis team on Sunday.
The Judges improve to 7-3, and the Bobcats drop to 5-5.
Bates won two out of three doubles matches by 8-6 scores, but Brandeis grabbed a key 9-7 win at third doubles.
