Juan Guerra notched his 15th doubles win in DU's NCAC Quarterfinal victory.

The Denison men's tennis team opened the 2014 North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament with a convincing 5-0 victory over Wittenberg on Friday at the Mitchell Fieldhouse in Granville, Ohio.  With the win, DU earned a berth in the tournament semifinals on Saturday.

The Big Red outscored the Tigers 24-2 in doubles play to grab a 3-0 lead in the match.  DU won matching 8-1 decisions at the first and second flights. The No. 1 team of senior Juan Guerra and junior Grant Veltman defeated Stas Pakhomov and Alexey Topolyanskiy, while Casey Cempre and Andrew Marczak were victorious over Jialang Woo and Mitchell Patterson at second doubles.

Denison completed the doubles sweep when Jackson O'Gorman-Bean and Jeffrey LoDuca shut out Akbar Tiwana and Dennis Gleason at No. 3 doubles.  The Big Red clinched the win with straight-set victories at third and fourth singles.  Cempre pulled DU within one point following a 6-1, 6-0 decision over Tiwana.  Veltman ended the match after posting matching 6-1 scores over Woo.

The Big Red moves to 13-6 on the year, while the Tigers fall to 11-9.  Denison will take on 23rd-ranked DePauw, who shut out Wabash in the quarterfinals, in the semifinal round of the NCAC Tournament on Saturday at 11 a.m.
