SAN DIEGO - The No. 57 San Diego State men's tennis team continues its stretch of seven-straight dual matches away from home this weekend, as the Aztecs travel north for dual matches against No. 74 Santa Clara on Thursday, Feb. 20, beginning at 3 p.m. PT, and Pacific on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 2 p.m. PT.

SDSU (5-2, 3-0 MW) is coming off two road victories in Las Vegas, Nev., last weekend, defeating No. 66 BYU, 6-1, on Saturday, before knocking off Mountain West foe UNLV, 4-3, on Sunday for its 12th-straight MW regular season win. The Aztecs have won three-consecutive dual matches overall.

Freshman Hendrik Jebens (Stuttgart, Germany) went a perfect 4-0 over the weekend, earning two singles victories and teamed with sophomore Freddy Gelbrich (Isernhagen, Germany) for two wins in doubles play. Jebens is 4-2 in singles play this dual season, all in the No. 4 slot, while he and Gelbrich are 3-3 in doubles action.

Gelbrich, ranked No. 124 in the nation, split two singles matches over the weekend and won both doubles matches with Jebens. The redshirt sophomore is 5-2 in singles play this season, all in the No. 3 spot, and has won two of his last three singles matches overall.

The Aztecs faced Santa Clara last season, when they swept the No. 56 Broncos, 7-0, at Aztec Tennis Center. Santa Clara is 5-1 this dual season, and has won four-straight matches after knocking off Fresno State, 4-0, on Sunday. The Broncos' only loss this dual season was to No. 2 USC on Jan. 25.

SDSU has won two-straight matches over Pacific, as the two teams will face each other for the third-consecutive dual season. The Tigers are 2-3 this season and have lost two-consecutive matches heading into Wednesday's match at Fresno State. In addition, Pacific sophomore Sem Verbeek is currently ranked No. 95 in the nation.
