NEW ORLEANS -- Tulane won the doubles point and three singles matches Sunday to record a 4-0 victory against Xavier University of Louisiana in a matchup of city rivals and ranked women's teams at City Park/Pepsi Tennis Center.

Tulane, ranked 56th in NCAA Division I, is 3-3. Xavier, ranked third in the NAIA, is 1-1.

Meredith Maltby and Ipek Birol clinched the doubles point for the Green Wave with a 6-0 decision against Brion Flowers and Simone-Alyse Ewell at No. 2. The dual was stopped after Maltby defeated Ewell 6-1, 6-0 at No. 5 singles.

Two freshmen posted the Gold Nuggets' best scores in unfinished singles matches. Xavier's Nour Abbes trailed Klara Vyskocilova 6-1, 1-4 at No. 1, and teammate Brandi Nelson trailed Margaux Hyman 7-5, 0-1 at No. 6.

It was the first of nine duals this season for the Gold Nuggets against NCAA D-I opponents. Xavier's women and men will visit another D-I, Louisiana-Lafayette, at 6 p.m. Wednesday. The next home duals for the Gold Nuggets and Gold Rush will be Feb. 22 against Alabama State.
