HANOVER, N.H. - The Purdue men’s tennis team picked up its second ranked victory in as many days on Sunday. The Boilermakers defeated No. 51 Brown, 4-2, in the Dartmouth Kickoff Classic.

The win improved the team’s record to 7-0 which ties the best start in program history. The Boilermakers last achieved a 7-0 start in 2007. Purdue only had that same start one other time which was in 1992.

The Boilermakers started the morning with wins at No. 1 and No. 3 in doubles to clinch the point. In singles, Purdue picked up wins at Nos. 2, 5, and 6 while Brown won at No. 3 and No. 4. The No. 1 singles match was abandoned after Mark Kovacs clinched the win for Purdue in three sets at No. 2.

Full results and names associated with matches were not available at the time of publication. Updates will be made available on PurdueSports.com as soon as full results are attained.

Purdue improves to 3-0 all-time against Brown. The Boilermakers also won in 2001 and 2002.

The Boilermakers seek the best start in program history on Saturday at 7 p.m. at No. 53 Denver. Purdue and Denver are tied in the all-time series, 1-1, as the Boilermakers won in 2011 and the Pioneers were victorious last season, 5-2.
