WEST POINT, N.Y. – In what would be their final dual match as nonconference foes, Army defeated Boston University 7-0 in a men’s tennis showdown on Friday afternoon at West Point’s Lichtenberg Tennis Center. The Black Knights needed just over two hours to hand the Terriers, who are set to join the Patriot League next season, their first loss of the season.

Army (5-2) won all matches against BU (4-1) in straight sets to cruise to the victory. The Black Knights improved to 5-2 all-time against the Terriers and are winners of four of the last five showdowns.

Freshman Harrison McCormick maintained his undefeated mark in both doubles (7-0) and singles (6-0) matches, as the plebe teamed with junior Asika Isoh for their sixth victory of the season and fourth at the No. 1 spot.

Army’s win over BU marked the first of four matches this weekend. The Black Knights will host Sacred Heart tomorrow at 1 p.m., before wrapping up the weekend with Quinnipiac (9 a.m.) and Monmouth (5 p.m.) on Sunday.
