AUBURN, Ala. – The Miami men’s tennis team concluded play at the Auburn Invitational Sunday at the Yarbrough Tennis Center.

In singles action, fourth-year junior Oren posted a 2-1 record over the weekend. Vasser defeated Maxwell Smith (6-1, 6-1) from Clemson on Friday, before rallying from down a set to take a three-set victory over Auburn’s Raul Dobaí (6-7, 6-4, 6-3) on Saturday.
