Ann Arbor, Mich. -- The Maryland women's tennis team (9-10, 3-5 B1G) fell to No. 24 Michigan, 4-0, on Saturday. 

The Wolverines featured a strong lineup, which included a pair of ranked singles players. 

Michigan got the early lead over Maryland, picking up the doubles point behind a pair of wins at second and third singles. Maryland's top doubles team of Ekaterina Tour and Arnelle Sullivan played a 5-5 unfinished match, nearly knocking off Michigan's Fahey and Minor. 

The Maize and Blue didn't look back when singles play started, rattling off three-consecutive wins to clinch the match. 

Freshman Eva Alexandrova took a set against No. 28 Kate Fahey at first singles, but ultimately fell in three sets. Fellow freshman Zoe Kulkarni led by a set at fourth singles, but the Wolverines clinched the match victory before Kulkarni could close out a win. 

Senior Ekaterina Tour also led in her second set before the Wolverines clinched the victory. 

Maryland will be back in action on Sunday, wrapping up its 2018 road schedule with a match at Michigan State. Opening serve is scheduled for noon.
