JOHANNSEN, BAROZ NAMED CAA DOUBLES TEAM OF THE WEEK

RICHMOND, Va.  – Sometimes it takes a grace period for people to get used to each other. Sometimes it happens instantaneously.

The latter was the circumstance surrounding senior Tim Johannsen and freshman Antoine Baroz of the Virginia Commonwealth University men's tennis team.

The duo's recent success landed them this week's CAA Doubles Team of the Week honor.

"Not everybody is a good doubles player, it usually takes a lot of time to get used to and learn about your teammate," Head Coach Paul Kostin said. "So far, Tim and Antoine have worked well together."

In their first match of the week against #68 Elon, the pair made pretty quick work ofAlberto Rojas and Cameron Silverman to spark VCU to a 5-2 win over the Phoenix.

The pair's other match of the weekend included an easy 8-1 defeat of UMBC's Cristian Hodel and Rasid Winklaar.

On the year, Johannsen and Baroz are 6-2 with four of those victories coming at the number two position in the Black & Gold lineup.
