Surprise lineup change benefits Rams

The most anticipated singles match of the Virginia men's tennis team's season never happened. Instead, the Cavs (13-6) were sent home with a demoralizing loss to No. 16 VCU (18-4).

The Rams' Daniel Andersson, the nation's No. 1 men's tennis singles player, moved from his customary No. 1 spot to the No. 2 and avoided a match against Virginia's Brian Vahaly. Both Andersson and Vahaly, ranked fourth in the nation, cruised through their singles matches over Virginia's Huntley Montgomery and the Rams' Frank Moser, respectively, and VCU swept the rest of the singles and took the doubles point to win, 5-1.
