The Oregon men traveled to Columbus, Ohio, for the ITA Kickoff hosted by Ohio State. The Ducks were coming off of a strong showing the previous weekend against Pacific and Seattle, where they dropped no matches.

The Ducks lost a close match to the Broncos on Friday. They picked up the double point with David Cierny/Ray Lo and Avi Shugar/Vlad Breazu winning their respective matches.

The men won the first two singles points with Lenn Luemkemann and Mathew Burton winning their matches, but Boise St. took the next three matches to bring the battle to a 3-3 tie and a showdown between Ray Lo and Jett Middleton. Middleton won the first set 7-6, but Lo came back to win the second 6-4. The third set was tightly contested and brought to a 6-6 tie. Ray Lo put up a fight and held off seven set points before ultimately dropping the third set in a 12-10 tiebreaker.
