April 18, 2012


SAN DIEGO - The No. 61 San Diego State men's tennis is set to travel across town for the City Championship against No. 25 USD. The non-conference tilt is scheduled for a 3 p.m. PT start on Thursday at Hogan Tennis Center.

SDSU (14-6, 4-1 in MW play) is coming off a weekend where it earned its third straight and fourth overall Mountain West victory of the season with a 7-0 sweep of UNLV on Saturday afternoon at the Aztec Tennis Center.

The Toreros, meanwhile, are 14-7 and 5-2 in West Coast Conference play after posting a 2-1 record in their last three conference matches. USD swept San Francisco, 7-0, on Saturday, it dropped a 4-3 decision to then-No. 32 Santa Clara on Sunday and then the Toreros tallied a 7-0 victory against Loyola Marymount on Tuesday afternoon.

San Diego State is 16-9 against USD in the all-time series. The Aztecs knocked off the then-No. 29 Toreros, 4-3, in April of last year at the Aztec Tennis Center.

After the City Championship, San Diego State will return home for a Senior Day matchup with UC Santa Barbara. The regular-season finale is slated for 11 a.m. PT on Sunday, April 22 at the Aztec Tennis Center and senior Javier Pulgar will be honored prior to the match.
