        Being a team sport in college makes all the difference.

      The Shocks were down 3-1 after the doubles point went to Memphis and Memphis won the #1 and #6 singles with the Shocks lone point coming in the #5 singles. The Shocks had to sweep the #2, 3 and 4 singles to win the match. Eddie Stoica came through in the #4 singles with a 7-6, 6-2 win to make it 3-2 and then Murkel Delien pulled out a 7-6, 6-7, 6-1 win at #2 to tie the match at 3-all. After splitting the 1st two sets in the #3 singles 5-7, 6-2 Marius Frosa fell behind 1-3 in the 3rd set before rallying to tie the set at 6 to force a tiebreaker that Marius won 7-4 to complete the Shocker comeback.

        The Shocker men headed north to Lincoln today and came away with a hard fought 4-3 win over the Huskers coming back to win 4 of 6 singles matches after dropping the doubles point.

        The key match was probably the #5 singles which was the last match completed where 6-6 Shocker freshman, Stefan Latinovic, prevailed in 3 sets by scores of 4-6, 6-3 and 7-5.

        More stormin' the court by the team I suspect.

          The Shockers double dipped on Sunday with an 11:30 am match vs Charlotte held at Collegiate High School and then headed over to Genisis Health Club to take on UMKC at 4:30 am.

          Against Charlotte the Shocks dropped the doubles point and then came back to take 4 of the 6 singles matches to pull out a 4-3 win. This is the 3rd consecutive match shwere that has happened which has to be somewhat unusual.

          After dropping the doubles point Shocker freshman Orel Orvil got the Shocks on the board with a 6-3, 6-1 win at #6 singles to tie it up at 1-1.

          Fellow Shocker freshman Stefan Latinovic picked up a 6-4, 6-4 win at #5 singles to give the Shocks a 2-1 lead.

          Charlotte tied it back up at 2-2 with a 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 win over Marius Frosa in the #3 singles.

          Shocker senior Haru Inoue made it 3-2 Shocks with a tough 7-5, 6-4 win at #1 singles.

          Shocker junior Murkel Delien clinched the match with a 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 win at #2 singles giving the Shocks a 4-2 lead.

          Shocker senior Eddie Stoica dropped a tight 3 set match by scores of 4-6, 6-4, 5-7 for the final score of 4-3.

          Apparently, the Shocks had enough of the skin of the teeth stuff as the took the doubles point from UMKC in the afternoon match and then closed out the match with straight set wins at #4 (Eddie Stoica) #5 (Stefan Latinovic) and #6 (Orel Ovil) singles with the remaining 3 singles matches close but unfinished.
