O'FALLON, Ill. - Saint Louis men's tennis went 3-0 in three-set matches and captured a 5-2 victory over South Dakota State Saturday in the Billikens' spring-semester opener at St. Clair Tennis Club.

"This was a great win for our team in a tough match that could have gone either way," assistant coach Lance Vodicka said. "Things weren't looking too good for us for a while, but the guys found a way to win those close matches."

The Billikens (2-0) host Bradley Wednesday, Jan. 30, at St. Clair Tennis Club. First serve is scheduled for noon.
