MOSCOW, Idaho – The University of North Dakota men’s tennis team dropped a Big Sky Conference dual to Idaho, 7-0, on Saturday afternoon.

The Vandals started the meet by winning all three doubles matches to claim the doubles point. Idaho then took all six singles matches without losing a set, but No. 1 singles, Dustin Britton and No. 4 singles, Ty Misialek, both forced tiebreakers.

After a tough road trip out west, North Dakota looks to gain some confidence back as they take on Big Sky Conference opponent, Portland State, on March 3 and Augustana March 5, both at Choice Health & Fitness in Grand Forks.
