PROVO, Utah – After a dominating win over San Diego at home, BYU men’s tennis travels to the Pacific Northwest to take on Portland and Gonzaga this weekend.

BYU (11-8, 4-0 West Coast Conference) earned its fourth-straight WCC victory after defeating San Diego for the first time in four years. Jacob Sullivan and John Pearce posted wins in both doubles and singles as Pearce’s 6-4, 6-4 victory over the Torero’s Guus Koevermans at the No. 4 slot sealed the match 4-0 for the Cougars.

Portland (12-1, 2-0 WCC) picked up a pair of road wins against San Francisco and Santa Clara to open conference play last weekend. The Pilots are riding an eight-match win streak and have won 16 consecutive matches at home. Last year, No. 58 BYU took down No. 72 Portland 5-2 in Provo.

Gonzaga (6-6, 0-2 WCC) also opened conference play on the road last weekend but fell to both Santa Clara and San Francisco. Last season, the No. 58 Cougars swept the Zags 4-0 at home.

BYU plays Portland on Friday, March 31, at 10 a.m. PDT at the Louisiana-Pacific Tennis Center and Gonzaga on Saturday, April 1, at 12 p.m. at the Stevens Center. Results will be posted to the BYU men’s tennis schedule page
