SAN JOSE, Calif.----Chau Truong pulled out a super tiebreak win in number-three singles for San Jose State's only point in a, 6-1 loss to Nevada on March 13.
Truong took the first set against Florence De Vrye, 6-4, but dropped the next set, 6-2 forcing the super tiebreaker. Truong prevailed in the race to ten, and won the match, 6-4, 2-6, 10-5.
Olivia Marshall and Kerri Kummer filled spots one and two in singles for the Spartans, and both lost in straight sets, 6-0, 6-1. Anna Guzman, Sandra Florea, and Jennifer Williams all lost in straight sets as well.
"Our team needs to have more patience," said head coach Anh-Dao Nguyen-Church. "More patience will lead to better shot selection, and that will come with more practice and dual experience."
