WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross men's tennis team failed to pick up their second victory of the spring season as they fell to Rhode Island, 7-0, at home on Tuesday afternoon.

The senior duo of John Deaver (St. Louis, Mo.) and Colin Missett (Southington, Conn.) teamed up to win the third doubles match 8-6, but it was not enough.
