The Knights also had one doubles team collect a victory as well on the courts.

Sophomore Alexis Rodriguez went to 2-0 for the tournament thanks to a 6-3, 7-6(4) triumph over Mississippi State's Natalia Mayuk in the Black bracket. Classmate Taylor Dubins also stayed perfect after cruising to a 6-1, 6-1 win against Kelly Gray of Memphis in the White draw.

Doubles action finished up Saturday, and after going 1-1 Friday, the duo of junior Jenny Frisell and sophomore Andrea Yacaman took down MSU's Mayuk and Olesya Tsigyentseva, 8-4, to claim fifth place in the Garnet bracket.
