Tulsa, Okla.-The IUPUI Jaguars handed the Oral Roberts men's tennis team their first conference loss of the season and second setback in a row, out-dueling ORU 6-1 Friday afternoon at the University of Tulsa.

The Golden Eagles got the afternoon started on the right foot, when Mikhail Trukshanin and Igor Sobolta teamed up to post an 8-4 victory over Bren Vasalakis and Joe Hammond in #1 doubles.

IUPUI bounced right back however, earning the point with doubles wins in the #2 and #3 spots.

Igor Sobolta picked up ORU's lone singles win, hammering out a 6-1, 6-4 decision over Nick Volz in the #2 slot.

It was all Jaguars from that point however, as Ivan Mojsejey downed Trukshanin 6-3, 6-3 in #1 singles, and Dan Klingenberg and Joell Modesitt each won by default over ORU's Dario Beslic and Dmitry Suslov.

Matthew Tansil stumbled 3-6, 3-6 in #5 singles and IUPUI's Taylor Tunis wrapped up the victory in #6 singles with a clean 6-0, 6-0 win over Matthew Prevost.

With the loss, ORU drops to 2-7 overall and an even 1-1 in Summit League play.

The men are back in action on April 8, as they take on Centenary in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Game time is set for 10:00 a.m.
