AZUSA, Calif. -- The NAIA’s No. 4-ranked Azusa Pacific got 2 free points (defaults) and then did enough to get a 6-3 non-conference win against a short-handed NCAA Division II Grand Canyon (Ariz.) Friday in Azusa.

With the win, the Cougars improve to 8-2.

The Antelopes picked up their 3 points at the top of the lineup, all of them coming from 2 players. Medini Sharma and Nikita Bhardwaj teamed to defeat Jennifer Dao and Mayu Sato, 8-4, at No. 1. Sharma then defeated Dao at No. 1 singles, 6-4, 4-6 (10-8), and Bhardwaj downed Peggy Bell at No. 2 (6-4, 6-2).

But that was all the ’Lopes would get. The Cougars won at No. 2 doubles, and then Bay Daniels (No. 3), Mayu Sato (No. 4) and Lynn Quitoriano (No. 5) all picked up points with wins in singles’ play. The Cougars also got a pair of points when Grand Canyon defaulted at No. 3 doubles and No. 6 singles.
