Men’s Tennis Murphy Cassone to Play in NCAA Singles Third Place Match

Orlando, Fla. No. 42 Murphy Cassone will play in the NCAA Men’s Tennis Singles third place match on Saturday, May 27. A sophomore, Cassone is the first Sun Devil Men’s Tennis All-American since 1995 and has qualified for the ITA/ATP Accelerator Programme. 

The Kansas native won five straight matches in the NCAA postseason before he fell short on Friday afternoon to No. 8 Ondrej Styler (Michigan) 1-6, 2-6. 

A rain delay pushed the event indoors, and hours later than the anticipated start time for Cassone and Styler. 

In the first set, Cassone was unable to get a rhythm against Styler which resulted in a lone point for the Sun Devil. Styler continued his run until Cassone put himself on the board at 4-1. A final push came, but ultimately was not enough to get back into the match.

Cassone had two aces and went 50% in breakpoints.
