CHICAGO (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's tennis team (8-2) had its eight-match winning streak snapped on Saturday night at the hands of No. 75 DePaul, who defeated the Phoenix 4-3 at Lake Shore Sport and Fitness in Chicago.

The duo of Erik Finkenbrink (Duelman, Germany) and Craig Cox (Surrey, England) gave the Phoenix the early lead by securing the doubles point with a victory at the No. 1 spot. With the No. 2 and No. 3 matches split, the Green  Bay juniors closed out an 8-6 win over DePaul's Mathias Hambach and Sven Kasper to give the visitors the advantage.

The Blue Demons rebounded, however, and took four of the six singles matches to earn the 4-3 result.

Earning singles wins for the Phoenix were freshman Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) and senior Paul Swanson (Coon Rapids, MInn.). Both won in three sets, as Tenzer defeated DePaul's George Chanturia 7-6 (6), 3-6, 10-8 at No. 2 and Swanson beat Mathia Hambach 7-6 (8), 2-6, 10-8 at No. 4
