By NU Athletic Communications

Bloomington, Ind. -- The Nebraska men's tennis team (9-14, 1-7 Big Ten) fell short to the Indiana Hoosiers (11-9, 5-3 Big Ten), 5-2, on Saturday afternoon at the IU Varsity Courts in Bloomington, Ind.

Freshman William Gleason and sophomore Isaac Nortey notched a pair of singles wins for the Huskers, but Indiana took the doubles point and another four singles matches en route to its fifth Big Ten win of the season.

Gleason extended his winning streak to three matches -- and improved to a team second-best 11-8 mark -- after knocking off Carson Haskins at the No. 4 spot, 6-4, 6-1. Nortey snapped his four-match losing streak with a 7-6, 7-5 upset over Andrew Redding at No. 5.

No. 114 Boyer dropped a tough 6-0, 6-3 match to No. 80 Antonio Cembellin at the No. 1 spot, while Alvaro Moreno fell at No. 6 to Vikash Singh, 6-1, 6-0. Victor Moreno and Klousia both lost a pair of three-set matches at No. 4 and No. 2, respectively. Zac Brodney topped Victor Moreno, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, while Bennett Crane beat Klousia, 3-6, 6-2, 6-1. 

In doubles play, the 90th-ranked duo of Boyer and Gleason fell just short to No. 39 Haskins/Lam at the No. 1 spot, 7-5, while Klousia and Victor Moreno dropped a 6-2 match to Brodney/Krane at No. 2. Nortey and Dean led by 6-5 when Indiana took the doubles point.

The Huskers will make a short trip to West Lafayette, Ind., later today as they clash with the Purdue Boilermakers on Sunday, April 14 at 11 a.m. CT (Noon ET).
