Short-Handed Rebels Roughed Up By Cal Poly
Feb. 3, 2007
LAS VEGAS - Playing without its No. 2 singles player, the 66th-ranked UNLV men's tennis team could not pick up the slack and was upset by Cal Poly 4-1 in the first of two matches at the Fertitta Tennis Complex Saturday.
The Rebels fell to 1-2 while the Mustangs improved to 2-2. Cal Poly won both completed doubles matches, at the top and bottom spots, to take a 1-0 lead.
With senior leader Brett Hunter not in the singles lineup, Jonathan Hooper, Wesley Burrows and Luca Barlocchi all moved up one spot but lost their matches. Only David Campbell scored for the home team, sweeping Rob Foy 6-3, 6-0 at No. 5.
After the Mustangs got to four points, the remaining two matches were stopped because the Rebels were scheduled to face Montana State later in the day.
