Gert Vilms had a strong showing against UCLA and USC, going 1-1 in singles and 1-1 in doubles.

The biggest upset of the weekend was when Vilms and Carlos Lozano defeatedUCLA's No. 1 doubles team of Jean-Noel Grinda and Jean-Julien Rojer, 8-6.

USC brings three ranked players in No. 18 Andrew Park, No. 56 Nick Rainey, and No. 96 Parker Collins. The doubles team of Rainey and Ryan Moore is ranked No. 8 in the nation.

Pepperdine brings four ranked players into the match. Al Garland is their top player at No. 19 in the nation, followed by Sebastien Graeff at No. 61, Chase Exon at No. 77, and Stefan Suter at No. 80.

The Cougars have ranked players in Carlos Lozano, at No. 73 and Gert Vilms, at No. 81. The doubles team of Lozano and Vilms are 12-2 this season.
