I don't recall him winning another game. That was the final singles match in his NCAA career.
And everyone knows that the 2011 team was much better with Courtney playing at #5. Without him, then-freshman Justin Shane had to play #5, and was overmatched in the late rounds of the tournament. It's not an excuse, it's a fact.
The Mississippi incident was in 2012, and everything else you mentioned was in 2011.
