In singles action in the consolation bracket Saturday, four Bulldogs fell in their first-round matches. MSU senior Jose-Carlos Pinto made a vye for a big win, but fell just short to Florida's Nestor Briceno. After losing the first set 6-4, Pinto battled back to even the match, winning the second set 6-1. The third set went to a tiebreaker after Pinto overcame a 5-2 deficit, but Briceno ultimately prevailed. Bulldogs Pierre Mouillon, Ryan Farlow and Eric Lim all fell in straight sets while State sophomore Philippe Frayssinoux defaulted his consolation match.
Saturday's action concluded play for MSU at the SEC Indoors. The Bulldogs will now head home and prepare for their first dual match of the spring when they host UAB on Feb. 3 at 2 p.m at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre.
