In singles action, Doshi dominated Arianna Aldrey 6-1, 6-1, before Or earned the no. 2 singles point with a 6-0, 6-3 win. Finally, Larner defeated Blanco in the no. 1 singles matchup for the clincher.
Northwestern will face Kansas State tomorrow at noon. Kansas State defeated Kentucky 4-3 earlier Friday afternoon.
