SAN BRUNO, Calif. - The West Coast Conference has named Gonzaga's Sam Feit the West Coast Conference Singles Player of the Week and the Loyola Marymount duo of Nick Borchenko and Gabriel Diaz Freire the Doubles Team of the Week. 

Feit earned a pair of straight-set victories playing in Gonzaga's No. 1 singles spot this week, helping the Zags stay perfect on the season at 6-0. Feit defeated Idaho's Mark Kovacs, 6-2, 6-3, on Tuesday, and then was the match clincher against UC Davis when Feit downed the Aggies' Ivan Thamma, 6-4, 6-4. The win pushed Feit's season record to 15-4 overall, including a 5-0 mark in singles play. His five singles wins are part of GU's 34-0 mark on singles courts in dual-match play.

The Lions duo of Borchenko and Diaz Freire went 2-0 last week, helping LMU to a split of two matches against Arizona State and Fresno State. The pair is now 7-2 overall, including 5-1 in dual matches, and have won five straight decisions. The duo opened play with a 6-4 victory over Ruehl and Hannestad of Arizona State on Friday before topping Soke and Veys of Fresno State, 6-4, on Saturday. LMU captured the doubles point in both matches, with the two teaming to get the first victory in both matches while playing at the No. 2 spot in the order.
