ANN ARBOR, Michigan — The NKU men’s tennis team advanced to the Horizon League semifinals Friday with a 4-2 victory over Illinois-Chicago at the University of Michigan.

NKU, the three-seed in the tournament, will play two-seeded Green Bay 3 p.m. Saturday in the semifinals. The match will be broadcast on ESPN3. A win would put them in the Horizon League championship match Sunday.

The Norse started off by claiming the doubles point. The team of Nick Lang and Jody Maginley defeated Mitch Granger and Christopher Cole 6-4 at first doubles, while Court Clark and Mate Virag had no trouble pounding Nate Campanile and Carl Hedstrom at second doubles, 6-0.

UIC pulled even at 1-1 by winning at fourth singles. Granger defeated Clark 6-1, 6-3. NKU regained the lead with Maginley’s 6-3, 6-4 win at second singles over Marcelo Dib. Lang pulled the Norse within one victory of the match win with a 6-1, 6-4 win at sixth singles over Campanile.

The Flames stayed alive when Max Cederkall rallied for a 3-6, 6-2, 6-1 win at fifth singles against Adrian Isache. However, Virag would close the match for the Norse with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 win over Hedstrom at first singles.

The remaining singles match, which saw Lukas Clemens trailing 3-4 in the third against Cole, was abandoned when NKU clinched the victory.
