The Hurricanes (5-2), winners of four straight, took the match-clinching 4-0 lead before the 50th-ranked Bulls (3-6) closed the match with three singles victories.

UM's Keith Crowley and Hector Nieto knocked off USF's No. 2 doubles pair, 8-4, and then Miami's top-flight tandem of Christian Blöcker and David Simon clinched the doubles point - and remained perfect at 5-0 this season - with the 9-7 victory to give the Hurricanes the early 1-0 lead.
