Abdelnour and Hoh also had success in doubles action, as the duo claimed an 8-5 victory over George Washington tandem Dias and Ugur Atalay.
After going 3-0 and taking down a top-25 opponent in the first two days of the tournament, senior Roy Kalmanovich failed to knock off his second nationally ranked opponent of the weekend. The Framingham, Mass., native fell in his first-place match to No. 18 Jarmere Jenkins of Virginia, 6-2, 6-2.
