CEDAR CITY, Utah - Southern Utah University men's tennis endured its fourth consecutive loss of the season on Monday, falling to Northern Colorado 7-0 at home on the Thunderbird Tennis Courts. The defeat gives the T-Birds an 0-4 record on the year while the Bears moved to 7-3 and 5-1 in the Big Sky Conference with the victory.

UNC took No. 2 and No. 3 doubles, 8-3 in each match, to secure the doubles point. Southern Utah's No. 1 pairing of Troy Benson and Blair Robbins fought back from a 3-0 deficit to tie the match at 6-6 before eventually falling 8-6, giving the Bears the doubles sweep.

Benson and Robbins also had the best showing at singles for the Thunderbirds, despite falling 6-1, 6-3 and 6-1, 6-4 at No. 1 and No. 2 singles, respectively.
