After Columbia dropped the doubles point, juniors Ashok Narayana and Bert Vancura, and sophomore Mike Vermeer won singles points for the Lions.
The match came down to No. 1 singles, where No. 18 junior Winston Lin pulled out a 2-6, 6-3, 6-4 win over No. 21 Austin Gonzales.
The Light Blue’s next match will be against No. 1 USC at 9 a.m. on May 16 in Athens, Georgia.
