Razorbacks Drop Season Finale to LSU, 7-0
BATON ROUGE, La. – A road trip to LSU for the Razorbacks had a lot riding on it as the Hogs, now 11-13 and 2-9 in the SEC, were looking for a win to help boost their seed in the SEC tournament and a chance for an NCAA bid. Unfortunately for the Hogs, LSU proved to be too much. The Tigers improved to 12-8 overall and 5-6 in league play.

“Everything was flat today,” Cox said. “I’m proud our effort after everything that transpired over the week. Everything else was there but our tennis was flat. We just have to regroup now and hope to make a splash in the SEC tournament.”

Arkansas would once again lose the doubles point as it lost all three matches 8-4. First off the court was Rohan Gajjar and Talley Parker who lost to Peter Richman and Paul White. Securing the doubles point for the Tigers would be Cory Ross and Sebastian Rutka, defeating Matt Roberts and Adrians Zguns. The number one doubles match saw the No. 21 duo of Jason Hazley and Bryan Fisher defeating Eduardo Pacheco and Aleksey Bubis.

Singles had been the Hogs forte all season long, but it was not to be on Saturday. The Tigers continued their dominance winning all six singles matches.

At number two, Jason Hazley would quickly oust Eduardo Pacheco, 6-2, 6-1. Following the number two match, No. 51 Peter Richman defeated Aleksey Bubis, 6-4, 6-4, at number one. With the score 3-0, Sebastian Rutka would clinch the match with a 6-4, 6-2, defeat of Rohan Gajjar at number four. At number six, Talley Parker would fall to Pal white in a 7-6(3), 6-2, final. Bryan Fisher would put an end to Adrians Zguns recent success in singles with a 6-3, 7-6(4), win at the number three spot. To end the day, No. 117 Cory Ross would defeat Matt Roberts, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, at the number five position.

The Hogs are now ready to regroup and head to Oxford, Miss., for next week’s SEC Tournament. The Hogs first round match will be on Thursday with Friday, Saturday and Sunday having their own respective rounds. Brackets for the tournament will not be released from the conference office until Sunday evening or Monday morning.
