Montana State Comes To Provo

The BYU men's tennis team will host Montana State on Satuday at 2 p.m. in the BYU Indoor Tennis Courts.

The Cougars, 3-4on the season, defeated the University of Idaho, 7-0, on Saturday afternoon.

After a tough four-game road trip to start the season, BYU has won three in a row. All three of those victories have been 7-0 shutouts.

Carlos Lozano and Gert Vilms lead the way for the Cougars, playing in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots. Lozano and Vilms are both 11-6 this season in singles. They are 14-3 as a doubles team.

Montana State is 2-5 on the season with victories over Montana State-Billings, 7-0, and the University of Montana, 5-2. BYU played the University of Montana earlier in the season, defeating the Grizzlies, 7-0, in Provo.

The Montana State Bobcats have been led by sophomore Lukasz Mazur, who has posted a 5-2 mark at No. 2 singles.

"Lukasz (Mazur) is playing great tennis and Thijs (Goossens) is playing neck-and-neck with some of the best players in the nation," said MSU first-year coach Mike Phillips.

Montana State's No. 1 doubles tandem of Goossens and BJ Hauck have also posted a 6-2 slate this winter.
