On court one, Thea Rice and Nejla Zukic battled to a 6-4 win to clinch the doubles point.
Anastasiia Khokhlova downed Rice (6-1, 6-1) on court one to even the match at 1-1, but Hunter Roper picked up a straight sets win over Olivia Elliott (6-0, 6-3) on court four to regain the lead for A-State. The Trojans tied the match at 2-2 with Franziska Ahrend defeating Vdovychenko 6-1, 6-4. Michelle Ncube followed with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Emily Surcey to give Troy the 3-2 advantage, but Humbert made it 3-3 with a win (6-1, 6-4) over Andrea Widing.
