PITTSBURGH, Pa. – Denison men's tennis traveled to Pittsburgh, Pa. on Saturday afternoon where they fell to No. 9 Carnegie Mellon University, 7-2, at the CMU Tennis Courts.

In doubles play, DU's No. 1 pairing of Kevin Brown and Jamie McDonald were edged by the nation's 15th best combo of Daniel Levine and Chaz Downing, 8-6. The Big Red countered with a win in No. 2 doubles when freshmen Mitchell Thai and Vlad Rotnov posted an 8-4 defeat of Nicholas Calzolano and Ben Ash, but the Tartans took a 2-1 advantage after doubles competition following an 8-2 defeat of Tommy Cheng and Kailas Shekar over DU's Blake Burstein and Patrick McGuigan in No. 3 doubles.

On the singles courts, CMU took the first five matches led by the nation's second-ranked singles player, Daniel Levine, earning a 6-2, 6-3 win over Rotnov in No. 1 play. On the No. 4 court, Brown dropped the first set to Shekar, 7-5, but rebounded in the second set, 6-1. Entering the third set tied at 1-1, Shekar took the match with a 6-2 set win.

No. 5 singles also saw a battle when Danish Siddiquie took the first set 7-5 over Robert Levin, but then fell in the next two sets, 6-2 and 6-4 to drop the match. The Big Red did pick up a win in No. 6 singles when McGuigan took the first set, 6-3, over Joshua Pinckney, but Pinckney then forced a third set with a 6-2 second set win. McGuigan earned the win with a 6-4 third set victory.

The Big Red will stay on the road this coming Wednesday, April 4 when they head to Gambier, Ohio for a 4:30 p.m. start with No. 22 Kenyon College.
