MIAMI SHORES, Fla.— The Barry University women’s tennis team was blanked by Division I Buffalo on Tuesday afternoon, losing 9-0 at the Buccaneer Tennis Center.

The Bucs didn’t field a third doubles team, losing in the three spot by default.
The Bucs had no better luck in singles as they were unable to take any points from the Bulls (4-4).  Like doubles, the Bucs defaulted in the sixth spot in singles.
