Nov. 6, 2012

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame men's tennis player Greg Andrews has been named the BIG EAST Player of the Month for October, the league office announced on Tuesday.

The reigning BIG EAST Player of the Year has started out the 2012-13 season on the right foot as he is 6-3 in singles and 9-3 in doubles, including being named MVP of the OFCC Invitational in September and advancing to the doubles finals with teammate Spencer Talmadge at the USTA/ITA Midwest Regional Championships in October.

Andrews opened the month at the ITA Men's All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., where he breezed past No. 29 Clay Thompson of UCLA, 6-0, 6-4, before falling to No. Roy Sarmiento of USC, 6-3, 6-4. He then went 2-1 in singles at the Midwest Regional Championships, picking up a pair of wins over Big Ten foes before losing to Ohio State's Hunter Callahan, 6-4, 6-4.

In doubles, Andrews went 8-1 in October with Talmadge. After picking up a pair of wins at the Tom Fallon Invitational over teams from Alabama and Michigan, the duo rolled through the left side of the doubles bracket at the Midwest Regional Championships. They opened with an 8-2 win over Axel Lagerlof and Simon Formont from Northern Illinois, before dropping Lucas Waak and Eric Honert of Valparaiso by the same score.

In the third round they swept Rodrigo Campos and Zeeshan Ismail from Youngstown State, 8-0. In the fourth round they snuck past Michigan State's Denis Bogatov and Harry Jadun, 8-6, before taking down Alex Pelaez and Erik Brunskog of Illinois State by the same score in the quarterfinals.

The semifinals saw the pair drop Michigan's Barrett Franks and Vlad Stefan, 8-6, before finally seeing their tourney come to an end in the finals with an 8-5 setback to Farris Gosea and Tim Kopinski of Illinois.

The honor is the first for Andrews after earning three BIG EAST Player of the Week scrolls last spring.

No. 24 Andrews and his Irish teammates close out the fall season this weekend as they head to Williamsburg, Va., for the Tribe Invitational.
