The USF men's tennis team got impressive singles wins from Thong Tu at number two and Falko Huettenberger at number three but still dropped a 5-2 decision to California Sunday afternoon at the Second Annual Pebble Beach Collegiate Classic.

After dropping the doubles points, USF won two of the top three singles matches, with Thong Tu topping Daniel Sebescen 6-4, 7-6 and Falko Huettenberger winning over Eoin Heavey 7-5, 6-4.

The match was closer than the score indicated as Matt Berry barely lost at number one , 7-6 in the third set and Rainer Nachbauer lost two 7-6 sets at number four.

The Dons (7-7) are back in action with two matches at Golden Gate Park Tuesday, facing Northern Colorado at 9:00 a.m. and Cornell at 1:00 p.m.
