Liberty's Nicaise Muamba came up short in his match on Sunday at the ITF Canada F7 Futures tournament, losing 6-2, 6-1 to Alexander Knight at the Aviva Centre.

During the previous matchup, Muamba took Knight took a tiebreaker in the first set before losing in two sets, 7-6 (4), 6-0.

Muamba wraps up his first two events of the season (ITF Canada F6 Futures, ITF Canada Canada F7 Futures) with a 3-2 record.

Muamba's teammates are concluding their first fall tournament of the season at the Silverado Invitational, hosted by Oklahoma State, in Napa, Calif.

The Flames will be back in action at the Liberty University Invitational, next Friday through Sunday at the Cook Tennis Center.
