TULSA, OKLA.--Doubles team Jadon Phillips and Phil Anderson caused an upset in today's match defeating, seeded number seven in the tournament, Mississippi State's Cant/Stropp with a score of 8-3.

Jadon Phillips and Phil Anderson are ranked number 18 in the nation and defeated a doubles team that is ranked number seven in the nation by five games. Cant/Stropp were down 3-6 in the match serving 0-40 with just one more point for the Lobos to make it 6-4. Mississippi State fought back to deuce and nearly swung the momentum back on their side, but the Lobos held tough and won the game on their fourth break point, making it 7-3 and eventually winning the match 8-3.

"We played well today. We came out with a ton of energy and belief that we could win the match," Junior Jadon Phillips said.  "There are a few small things here and there that we can work on to get ready for tomorrow's match but I feel that we can put ourselves in good position to play well again."

"The match went well today.  It was easy for me because Jadon was playing great and Bart helped us come up with a great plan," Senior Phil Anderson said. "We're excited for tomorrow's opportunity to get out there and have some fun."

Assistant coach Bart Scott was very pleased with the way they played in today's match.

"Good overall performance today.  What's really nice is they didn't have to play outside of themselves to get the win," Scott said. "They played solid meat and potatoes doubles and executed when they got their opportunities.  We're looking forward to a tough match tomorrow."

The Lobos will be facing off against, a doubles team that is ranked 26 in the nation, Auburn's Mies/Stamchev.
