ST. LOUIS - Jenny Nalepa nearly pulled off a major upset Friday afternoon in the Saint Louis women's tennis team's 7-0 loss to No. 55 Memphis at Dwight Davis Tennis Center.

Nalepa, the Billikens' No. 1 singles player, was edged 4-6, 6-1, 10-8 by 27th-ranked Courtney Collins.

Despite SLU's loss, assistant coach Adam Reeb gave the Billikens high marks for their performance.

"We're encouraged and positive about competing well against an outstanding nationally ranked team," Reeb said. "Jenny gave an excellent effort and gave Courtney Collins all she could handle.

"With the Atlantic 10 Championship just three weeks away, a match like this really helps us prepare as we try to win a conference title."

The Billikens travel to Indianapolis to take on Butler Sunday at 1 p.m.
