WASHINGTON – The Georgetown men’s tennis team (3-1) defeated the George Mason Patriots (1-1), 6-1, on Friday night at the International Country Club in Fairfax, Va.

In singles play, sophomore Daniel Khanin (Baldwin, N.Y./Pendleton) beat George Mason’s Jimmy Lange in the No. 1 position, 6-3; 6-2, which established a trend of five two-set victories for Georgetown.
Junior Shane Korber (Newport Beach, Calif./Corona Del Mar) won his second singles match of the spring in his three chances and senior co-captain Casey Distaso (The Woodlands, Texas/Edmond North) moved to 3-0 to start the spring season.
