    The Salukis couldn't match the depth of Memphis, struggling in singles and doubles competition.

    In singles action, Jorge Cavero, Badr Cherradi and Martijn Admiraal all battled their opponents but the matches were unfinished.

    "Who knows what would of happened if they guys were able to finish their matches," Nelson said.
