NEW ORLEANS, La. — Tomas Stillman and Diogo Casa posted wins in singles competition, but it was not enough for UTSA in a 5-2 loss at No. 63 Tulane on Sunday afternoon at City Park Pepsi Tennis Center.

Stillman beat Sebastian Rey, 6-4, 6-3, at No. 2 singles to run his record to a team-best 18-2 on the year, including a 10-1 mark on the second court. The junior transfer from Harlingen now has won five straight and 17 of his last 18 outings.

Meanwhile, Casa scored a 6-4, 3-6, 10-2 victory against Alex Van Cott at the fourth spot to improve his season ledger to 9-12 overall and 6-5 at No. 4. The sophomore from Brazil has been victorious in four of his last five outings.

Already armed with a 1-0 lead after sweeping all three doubles matchups, the Green Wave (13-6) won on the other four singles courts.

The home team took a 3-0 lead after claiming triumphs at Nos. 5 and 3 and clinched the match with their fourth point coming from a 6-4, 7-5 victory by Dominik Koepfer over Yannick Junger at the top spot.

The Roadrunners (8-14) will return to action when they travel to Houston to take on Rice (7-10) at 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 3.
