NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Yang Pang earned a big point with her first upset of a ranked opponent this season, but it was the only point the No. 33 University of Arkansas women's tennis team (5-5, 0-1 SEC) would get in a 6-1 loss at No. 8 Vanderbilt (8-3, 1-0 SEC) in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday.

A battle of ranked doubles teams highlighted the day's early action at the Currey Tennis Center, as No. 36 Courtney Colton and Lauren Mira of Vanderbilt faced No. 38 Kimberley - Ann Surin and Brittany Huxley of Arkansas. The Commodores would previal, however, and went on to also clinch the doubles point with a win at No. 3 doubles, as Frances Altick and Georgina Sellyn earned an 8-2 win over Oleksandra Shkorupeieva and Pang.

Pang made noise at No. 1 singles, earning her first win over a ranked opponent this season and upsetting No. 60 Georgina Sellyn in straight sets (6-3, 6-1). The victory helped trim VU's dual-match lead to 2-1.

Wins at No. 5 and then No. 4 clinched the dual match for the Commodores, as Marie Casares defeated Shkorupeieva 6-3, 6-3 and Lauren Mira topped Sarah McLean in a 6-1, 7-5 final.
