Sophomore and reigning Mountain West Player of the Week Thorsten Bertsch has been on a recent hot streak, going 4-1 overall in matches against Boise State, Cal and Pepperdine. Bertsch's doubles partner, junior Hunter Nicholas, went 3-2 during the same stretch, and was named MW Player of the Week on Feb. 20.
Central Florida is 6-5 this season and had won three-straight matches before losing at North Florida, 6-1, on Friday. Following Tuesday's match, the Aztecs will hit the road to Santa Barbara, Calif., for matches against UC Santa Barbara on March 9, and against Utah on March 10.
