DES MOINES, Iowa ( - The Green Bay men's tennis team (4-1) split a pair of matches at the Roger Knapp Tennis Center in Des Moines, Iowa, over the weekend, defeating UM-Kansas City 6-1 on Saturday before suffering its first loss of 2013 at No. 43 Drake 5-2 on Sunday.

On Saturday, the Phoenix started by winning the doubles point against UMKC, and then went on to take five of the six singles matches. Sophomore Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) paced Green Bay with a 6-2, 6-3 at No. 1, while senior Craig Cox (Surrey, England) picked up a 6-2, 6-2 victory at No. 2.

In the 5-2 loss to Drake (4-1), the host Bulldogs opened by taking the doubles point with wins at No. 1 and No. 2. Freshman Howard Scott (Exeter, England) and sophomore Michael Tebon (Excelsior, Minn.) picked up Green Bay's lone doubles victory, pulling out an 8-7 (6) win at No. 3 over Ben Mullis and Grant Tesmer.

Tenzer earned a hard-fought victory over a tough opponent at No. 2 singles, defeating No. 86 Alen Salibasic in a three-set thriller. Tenzer opened with a 7-6 (4) win in the opening set before Salibasic knotted things up with a 7-6 (5) win in set number two. Tenzer was able to bounce back in the tiebreaker, prevailing 10-6 to earn Green Bay's first point.
