KINGSTON, R.I. - The University of Massachusetts women's tennis team (6-10) defeated the University of Rhode Island (9-7) 7-0 this afternoon on the Rams' home courts, ending UMass' five-match skid.

Massachusetts got off to a perfect start by taking all three doubles matches, earning the doubles point.

The singles matches followed suit, as Massachusetts continued through without dropping a single set. Price defeated Fleming 6-1, 6-1 at the #1 spot, while the #2 match saw Liehr prevail over Seide, 7-6, 6-4, in the closest match of the contest. At the #3 position, Iwanowicz brushed aside Collins, 6-0, 6-2.
