SAN DIEGO - Juan Gomez kept his undefeated season going Saturday by coming back to win his No. 2 singles match, but it wasn't enough as the 63rd-ranked SDSU men's tennis team fell to No. 6 UCLA by a score of 5-2 at Los Angeles Tennis Center. The Aztecs, however, rallied to win two doubles matches to take the doubles point.

San Diego State (0-5) started off the day against the Bruins (4-2) strong by taking the first point of the match in doubles action. Achim Ceban and Giovanni Vaglietti combined to win at No. 2, 9-8, and Andre Feliz and Tim Schulz Vanendert won at No. 3 by the same 9-8 score.

At No. 2 singles, Juan Gomez dropped the first set to UCLA's Holden Seguso, but rallied to get the 5-7, 6-3, 6-3 win. The senior from Ecuador has now won all five singles matches he has played in this season.

The Aztecs return to San Diego for a home match against UC Santa Barbara on Sunday, Feb. 21, before they make the trip back up to Los Angeles to play USC next Tuesday.
