TAMPA, FL – The Brown men's tennis team (9-6) dropped a 5-2 decision to South Florida (7-7) in its final match during a spring break trip to Florida. USF won the doubles point and never looked back, earning wins in four of the six singles matches to take the 5-2 win.

In doubles action, Brown's team of junior Brandon Burke (Kingston, Jamaica) and sophomore William Spector (Weston, MA) claimed an 8-3 win at #2.

Spector then tied the match at 1-1 with a victory at #3 singles, defeating Guillermo De Vilchez, 6-0, 6-2.
