The Huskers did not receive the doubles point, with loses at No. 2 and 3 doubles. The only doubles victory and first finish was at the No.1 spot. NU's Pair of Andre Stenger and Eric Sock beat Purdue's pair of Szymon Tatarczyk and Krisztian Krocsko 8-5. 

Andre Stenger fell to Szymon Tatarczyk in a close match at No. 1 singles, finishing 7-5, 7-6. Another narrow loss, Tom Blackwells at No. 4 singles. He was defeated by Aaron Dujovne 6-4, 7-5, right after Sebastian Florczyk fell in a hard fought battle to Krisztian Krocsko 7-5, 6-4. 

"Disappointing match today,"  said Coach Kerry McDermott. "Double splayed very well at No. 1, but we couldn't win some close matches at No. 2 and No. 3. I hope we can bounce back on Sunday, and turn things around. It is going to a tough match against Indiana."
