MEN'S TENNIS DOUBLES TEAM OF THE WEEK
With the win, the duo improved to 8-1 overall on the campaign and dating to last year, the tandem has been nearly unstoppable, winning 13 of 14 matches, with the lone loss coming in a tiebreaker during the fall season. They have won 12 consecutive dual matches dating back to 2013.
This is the pair's third season playing together as Santa Clara No. 1 doubles team, and the two only seem to be getting better over time. The duo earned WCC Doubles Team of the Month two years ago, WCC Honorable Mention last year, and the sky seems to be the limit for these two in 2014. The Gonzaga win was the pair's 30th together, which ranks third in school history.
