BOCA RATON, FL - Antonello Magris wouldn't allow Florida Atlantic University to let a large lead slip away, as the Owls hung on to win, 4-3, against the University of Wisconsin Wednesday afternoon in Boca Raton, FL. Magris trailed a break when he stopped the Badgers rally by defeating Alexander Kasarov, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, at no. 1. FAU once led the match 3-1. With the win, FAU improves to 8-5 on the year.
The Owls trailed early, 1-0, following doubles but quickly took control of the match during singles play. F.J. Schofield, the Atlantic Sun Player-of-the-Week, got things rolling at no. 3. The junior defeated Scott Green, 6-3, 6-2. Schofield stretched his consecutive win streak to nine.
Following Schofield, the Paiz brothers widened FAU's lead to 3-1. Cristian Paiz downed David Hippee, 6-4, 6-1, at no. 2. Mauricio Paiz took care of Mark Weinig, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, at no. 6. That's when UW got hot.
The Badgers went on to win the next two matches at nos. 4 and 5, tying the match at 3-3. Fortunately for the Owls, Magris was able to turn his match around at no. 1.
FAU next takes the court against Georgia Southern University, 1:00 pm March 19, in Boca Raton, FL. The men will share the court with the Lady Owls who play Army.
