No. 7 USC Men’s Tennis Finishes Home Stand With UNLV

Men’s Tennis | February 01, 2024

LOS ANGELES – No. 7 USC men’s tennis (3-0) heads into its final home dual until the end of February, as it takes on UNLV (4-1) in a rescheduled match starting at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3 at Marks Stadium. 
The Trojans enter this weekend as the No. 7 ranked team in the country after being ranked there for four consecutive polls (ITA Coaches Poll, Jan. 31). USC currently hosts three ranked individuals and one ranked doubles squad in the most recent individual rankings (Nov. 15, 2023). Junior Peter Makk is the highest-ranking individual, ranked No. 39. Sitting behind him is No. 73 senior Lodewijk Weststrate. The last player with an individual ranking is No. 94 junior Karl Lee. Makk made the biggest splash that will change the individual rankings as he upset San Diego’s No. 31 player, Iiro Vasa, last weekend. 
USC has one ranked doubles squad with the combination of graduate students Samuel Rubell and Niroop Vallabhaneni at No. 47. The duo is 4-1 together and won the SoCal Intercollegiate on their home courts.
The Trojans clinched a spot in the ITA National Indoor Team Championships, as they won their ITA Kickoff Weekend Regional with wins over SMU and San Diego.
