He helped lead the Irish to a spot in the NCAA Tournament second round and also earned a spot in the NCAA Singles Championships. Andrews ended the 2012 season ranked 54.

The Irish, who played an exhibition contest in Ireland last Friday against players who competed for Ireland’s Davis Cup Team, return to fall action next weekend as they split up to go to Illinois for the Illini Invitational and to Western Michigan for the Vredevelt Invite.
