HOUSTON – Texas Tech closed out the first day of competition at the 2012 Hampton Inn Galleria Rice Fall Invitational in rain-soaked conditions at the Jake Hess Tennis Stadium on Friday evening.
Senior Raphael Pfister and Evan Nix each advanced in their respective brackets in singles play, while the doubles tandem of Nix and Pfister advanced to the consolation finals in doubles.
