LAS VEGAS (SMU) --- The No. 50 SMU women's tennis team fell to 10-6 with a 5-2 road loss at UNLV on Saturday. The Mustangs dropped the doubles point and a pair of three-set singles matches to the Rebels.

"UNLV came after us and got the job done," said head coach Kati Gyulai. "We had several stellar individual performances, but this is not an individual tournament. We look to be more disciplined tomorrow against Marshall."

The Mustangs earned both points in singles, winning a pair of contests in straight sets. Elena Fayner won 7-5, 6-2 at No. 4 and Hristina Dishkova earned a 6-4, 6-3 victory at No. 5.

In doubles, Edyta Cieplucha and Yana Erkeeva got the win for SMU. The duo triumphed 8-5 in the No. 3 match.

The Mustangs face Conference USA foe Marshall in Las Vegas on Sunday.
