Moreno lost at the third spot to Gonda, 6-1, 6-0, and Manzanas beat Avery in the fourth position, 6-1, 6-3.

The Panthers also took points at the fifth and sixth spots by default.

Moreno’s appearance was the first of his ORU career.

The Golden Eagles return to the court on Saturday, March 24 when they host Creighton.
