WINTER PARK, Fla. (March 15, 2013) - The sixth ranked Tars couldn't overcome an early one-point deficit after doubles on Friday, eventually falling to Auburn University at Montgomery, 7-2.

The Rollins duo of Will Kwok and Jason Alabaster defeated Bence Toth and Tim Hewitt, 8-6, in No. 1 doubles but the Tars dropped the other two doubles matches to fall behind 2-1 heading to singles.

Rollins didn't fair much better in singles play, dropping four out of the five singles matches.

The lone bright spot in singles was Malte Christesen who beat AUM's Bence Toth 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 in the No. 3 slot.

The Tars will be back in action Thursday, Mar. 21 when they host S.E. Oklahoma State. Play is set to begin at 2 p.m.
