CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Sophomore Andy Nguyen won his second singles match of the spring as the No. 64 Harvard men's tennis team fell, 6-1, to No. 44 Indiana Friday in its third straight dual against a Big Ten Conference opponent in as many duals to open the spring season.

Nguyen defeated the Hoosiers' Isade Juneau at the No. 5 singles spot, 6-7(5), 6-3, 6-4, for the Crimson's lone point in the dual. Indiana swept the duals for the point there, with the closest contest coming at the No. 1 slot, where Nguyen and partner Alistair Felton lost a 9-7 tiebreaker to Stephen Vogl and Josh MacTaggart. Senior captain Aba Omodele-Lucien had his two-match winning streak come to a hault against Indiana's Claes Goransson after winning the first set, falling 6-1, 2-6, 4-6.

The Crimson is back in action starting at noon Sunday at home for a doubleheader against No. 72 William & Mary and Boston University at the Murr Center Tennis Courts.
