No. 5 seed and defending Indoor champion Virginia had no trouble with No. 12 Tulsa Friday night at the Midtown Tennis Club. Although their No. 1 doubles team was beaten to open the match, the Cavaliers took that point, and won the first set in all the singles matches. Drew Courtney gave Virginia its second point with a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 6 over Ross Cunningham, and at No. 5, also in the back, hard-to-see courts, Steven Rooda gave the Cavaliers their third point with a 6-1, 6-3 win over Ashley Watling.
Michael Shabaz, who was down a break early in his match with Philip Stevens, found his return game midway through the first set, to put Virginia into the quarterfinals with a 6-3, 6-2 victory.
