PHILADELPHIA - The men's tennis team evened its record on the young season with an impressive 6-1 win over the Buffalo Bulls on Sunday from the Levy Tennis Pavilion. Buffalo's lone point of the afternoon came with a win in a third-set tiebreaker.

Penn put itself in the driver's seat early on, taking a 1-0 lead after the doubles teams of Vim De Alwis/Sylvester Wee and Austin Kaplan/Zach Katz each downed their Buffalo counterparts by identical scores of 8-2. Sitting out the doubles action was Blaine Willenborg, who showed fresh legs in wrapping up his No. 4 singles match first, winning 6-4 and 6-2.

Jeremy Court and Nikola Kocovic switched spots at No. 1 singles on Sunday, a move that worked well for each. Court quickly took down UB's Vusa Hove (6-4, 6-2) and Kocovic rallied in the first set to earn a 7-5, 6-3 victory over Damien David. With Kocovic's win securing the necessary fourth point for the Quakers, the Red and Blue received additional wins from De Alwis at No. 5 singles (6-4, 6-2) and Kaplan in No. 6 singles (2-6, 7-6, 7-6).

The Quakers continue a three-match homestand in 10 days' time, hosting Georgetown at Feb. 13 with action beginning at 2:30 p.m.
