DAVIS, Calif. - Toki Sherbakov and Brett Bacharach each claimed singles victories but the UC Davis men's tennis team dropped a Big West Conference match, 5-2, to Hawai'i on Saturday afternoon at the Marya Welch Tennis Center.
The Aggies (6-9, 0-2 Big West) lost to the second place Rainbow Warriors (6-12, 3-1) but kept it tight early.
All three doubles matches were decided by three points or less, with George Horowitz and Bacharach winning, 9-7, at No. 3 doubles. Sherbakov and Adam Levie lost 8-6 at No. 1 while Kyle Miller and Adam Luba fell 8-5 at No. 2.
Bacharach's doubles win provided momentum, which he carried over into a 6-4, 7-6 victory at No. 4 singles. Sherbakov shook off a tough doubles loss to win 7-5, 7-5 over Jared Spiker at No. 1 singles.
Hawai'i won the other four singles matches to take home the victory.
UC Davis is in the midst of a season-long five-match homestand. The Aggies wrap it up next weekend against Big West foes Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara.
