BYU vs. UCLA box score

LOS ANGELES—Despite strong singles efforts from Aidan Carrazedo and Shane Monroe, the BYU men’s tennis team lost 7-0 to the No. 6-ranked UCLA Bruins Thursday.

"UCLA is one of the best teams in the country," BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. "It's always a difficult transition to go from Provo to Los Angeles, but overall, I was pleased with our performance. We competed well and had the right mindset, especially in our doubles play. Some matches were closer than others, but I thought all of our players went out with a great mentality today."

BYU (11-3, 2-0 WCC) dropped the doubles point for only the fourth time this year. In the No. 1 doubles spot, juniors Carrazedo and Jeremy Bourgeois lost to UCLA’s Joseph Di Giulio and Karue Sell 3-6. Shortly after, the Cougar duo of Keaton Cullimore and Andrey Goryachkov lost to the Bruin’s No. 3 doubles team of Gage Brymer and Austin Rapp 3-6. John Pearce and Jacob Sullivan were leading UCLA’s Maxime Cressy and Martin Redlicki 6-5 before their match was called, as the Bruins had already claimed the doubles point.

UCLA (11-2, 0-0 Pac-12) took its momentum from doubles play into singles play. In the No. 4 singles spot, Logan Stagges defeated Pearce, 6-1, 6-2, to claim the second point of the match for the Bruins and Di Giulio defeated Bourgeois, 6-1, 6-3, for the third point. No. 93 Sell defeated Goryachkov 6-2, 6-4 to secure the victory for the Bruins.

Redlicki, who is ranked No. 57 nationally, defeated Monroe, 6-2, 7-6 (7-5) and Cullimore lost to No. 72 Brymer, 5-7, 6-2. Carrazedo won the first set against Ryoto Tachi, but lost the match in three sets, 6-1, 2-6, 3-6.

BYU will return home for two matches next weekend. The Cougars will face LMU in a WCC matchup Friday, March 18 at 2 p.m. MST and UNLV Saturday, March 19 at 12 p.m. MST. Admission is free.
