Feb. 13, 2012
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Junior Kyle McMorrow has been named Bank of the West Pac-12 Men's Tennis Player of the Week for the week of February 6-12, the conference office announced today. McMorrow led the Huskies to a pair of wins over 28th-ranked Michigan and 62nd-ranked UC Santa Barbara this weekend.
An All-Pac-10 First Team selection last year, this is the second career Player of the Week honor for McMorrow, a native of Thousand Oaks, Californai. It is the ninth all-time win for the Huskies.
Against No. 28 Michigan on Saturday at the Nordstrom Tennis Center, McMorrow upset 6th-ranked Evan King at the No. 1 singles spot, 6-3, 7-6 (6) as the Huskies went on to post a 6-1 victory. It was McMorrow's fourth win this season over players currently ranked in the Top-25, which includes a second win over King during the fall season.
On Sunday, McMorrow handled Mathieu Forget of UCSB, 6-2, 6-4 to improve to 6-1 in dual singles play, and he and Emmett Egger were 8-6 winners at No. 1 doubles to clinch the doubles point.
The Huskies improved to 6-2 on the year. They will have this week off before traveling to Eugene next week for matches against Oregon and UC Irvine.
