CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – A bevy of Harvard men's tennis players got in on the action Friday as the No. 73 Crimson picked up two victories in a doubleheader against Davidson and Quinnipiac to move to 4-3 on the season.

In its first win of the day, Harvard topped the Wildcats (2-4), 5-2, with wins at the No. 1, 2, 3 and 6 spot, as well as sweeping all three doubles matches for the point there. Junior Jonathan Pearlman defeated Davidson's Joe Schafer, 3-6, 6-3, 6-3, at the No. 1 spot to lead the Crimson.

Junior Mac McAnulty and freshman Tunc Kiymaz made their spring singles debuts against Quinnipiac (0-2) and helped Harvard to a 6-1 victory by winning their respective matches. Freshman Casey MacMaster got his opportunity at the No. 1 singles spot and won his second match of the day, 6-1, 6-2, over the Bobcats' Brian Mikkelson.

The Crimson will look to make it three ECAC titles in a row as it hosts the conference's team championships Feb. 18-21 at the Murr Center Tennis Courts.
