Men's Tennis Finishes Season vs. UC Santa Barbara
April 21, 2012
SAN DIEGO - The No. 61 San Diego State men's tennis is set to wrap up regular season play with a Senior Day matchup against No. 57 UC Santa Barbara. The non-conference tilt is scheduled for an 11 a.m. PT start on Sunday at the Aztec Tennis Center.
The contest with the Gauchos will represent the final regular-season home appearance for SDSU's lone senior Javier Pulgar and he will be honored prior to the match.
SDSU (14-7, 4-1 in MW play) is coming off a 6-1 setback to No. 25 USD on Thursday. Prior to that, the Aztecs had been on a three-match winning streak and they will be looking to go into next weekend's Mountain West Championships with a win.
UC Santa Barbara, meanwhile, is 13-8 overall and 4-1 in Big West play. The Gauchos dropped a 5-2 decision to No. 34 Fresno State on Tuesday, but just defeated UC Riverside, 6-1, on Saturday afternoon.
San Diego State is 13-7 against UCSB in the all-time series. The Aztecs knocked off the Gauchos, 4-2, in a rain-shortened contest in Feb. 2010.
After the matchup with UC Santa Barbara, San Diego State will prepare for the Mountain West Championships, which begin April 27 at the Aztec Tennis Center. SDSU will be the No. 2 seed and it will play the winner of New Mexico vs. Air Force at 10 a.m. PT on Saturday, April 28.
