DALLAS, Texas (UCFAthletics.com) - Sophomore Taylor Dubins secured a win in singles, but the UCF women's tennis team was unable to notch the upset in a 6-1 defeat at No. 28 SMU Sunday. With the loss, the Knights fell to 10-5 on the year while the Mustangs stretched their record to 21-3.

Looking to jump out in front with the doubles point, Jenny Frisell and Alexis Rodriguez knocked off Marta Lesniak and Aleksandra Malyarchikova at the No. 1 position, 9-7. It was the duo's fourth-straight victory. But the Knights could not get a win at No. 2 or No. 3, as SMU went ahead 1-0 overall.

The Mustangs' singles rotation included three nationally-ranked student-athletes so UCF knew it would be tested. And over at No. 6, Dubins cruised past Sophie Quist, 6-3, 6-1, for her fifth win in her last six outings. In the No. 1 spot, Frisell battled Lesniak to a third-set only to watch the No. 34-ranked player take the super-tiebreaker. SMU would also collect wins in the other four matches to defeat the Knights.

One final homestand remains for the Black and Gold before the Conference USA Championship April 22-25 in Tulsa, Okla. It will open it up by hosting Stetson April 9, then welcome FIU (April 10) and East Carolina (April 17) to town to conclude the regular season.
