URBANA, Ill. -- Kyle McMorrow saw his NCAA Tournament run come to an end on Friday, when he was ousted by eighth-seeded Henrique Cunha of Duke. The loss ends the senior's career, but not before he became the eighth All-American in program history.
Cunha, who was ranked ninth nationally by the ITA coming into the tournament, defeated McMorrow, 6-1, 6-0. He advances to the Round of 8 to take on Blaz Rola of Ohio State.
McMorrow, who came into the tournament ranked No. 17 by the ITA finishes the season with a record of 25-7 and 100-35 for his career. He became just the fifth Husky to reach 100 wins for his career.
The ITA Northwest Region Senior of the Year and All-Pac-12 First Team Selection became the eighth All-American in program history and first since Alex Slovic in 2007.
The Dawgs finished the season last week at the NCAA Team Championships with a second round loss to Ohio State. The Huskies were 18-12 on the season and 3-4 in the Pac-12. Along with McMorrow, Marton Bots will be lost to graduation, but UW brings back the rest of the talented young squad.
