The Trojans went winless in the doubles matches.

The Trojans (5-5) were in the midst of a five-match winning streak that saw them win against UCA 7-0 and 5-2 against University of Arkansas at Fort Smith on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at Burns Park.

The team went on the road and won three matches, including beating Alcorn State 5-2, William Carey 5-2 and Southern Mississippi 4-3.
