On the men’s side, BC (6-14, 1-10 ACC) has earned the No. 11 seed, and will also play against No. 6 North Carolina State (19-8, 5-6 ACC). The Eagles lost 7-0 to the Wolfpack earlier this season, as NC State was ranked No. 42 in the country.
BC is led by senior Akash Muppidi, who holds a record of 14-13 in singles play. The Connecticut native has gone 7-4 in tournament play this season, and 10-3 in doubles play with his partner, Billy Grokenberger.
If the Eagles can upset NC State this afternoon, they will advance to the second round for a game against No. 3 Duke on Friday.
