PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Justin To scored a big No. 1 singles victory on Tuesday, while the Bears claimed 5-of-6 singles matches overall en route to a 6-1 win over Boston College at the Pizzitola Sports Center.  With the win, Brown evens its record at 4-4 while the Eagles drop to 2-5.

 

In doubles action, the duos of Sam Fife/Brandon Burke and Daniel Hirschberg/Gregory Garcia claimed 8-2 and 8-4 victories, respectively, over their counterparts from Boston College.
