NEW YORK - The No. 13 ranked Columbia men's tennis team takes on Buffalo this Friday at 2:00 p.m. from the Dick Savitt Tennis Center. The match can be seen live on the Ivy League Network.
The Lions (10-3) are playing their first match in 12 days since going 2-2 on a spring break trip in Texas, while Buffalo (7-7) is back in action after falling to both Cornell and Harvard last weekend. Columbia hopes to avenge a 4-0 loss to TCU in their last outing, which was played without its No. 1 singles player, Victor Pham.
On the singles side, Pham dropped to No. 23 in the March 20 rankings, but still holds an 11-3 record this spring, while Jackie Tang fell six spots to No. 44 at 8-3 overall. The pair are holding firm at No. 12 in the doubles rankings, with teammates Jack Lin and William Matheson featured at No. 34.
For the Bulls, Hao Sheng Koay has posted a 6-3 record in duals out of the No. 1 singles spot, while Ethan Nittolo is 7-1 at No. 2 singles. The top doubles team of Petr Vodak and Vidit Vaghela is 6-3 in duals, and 9-3 overall.
After the match with Buffalo, Columbia hits the road to Penn on Friday, April 6 in the first Ivy League dual of the season.
