SEATTLE โ€“

The Huskies are back on the road with another big opportunity against a top-20 opponent, staying on the west coast this time but heading all the way down to San Diego. Saturday, at 12 noon, the Huskies (3-3) will face 18th-ranked San Diego (3-1) to finish off a five-match road stretch.
ย 
It’s the second-straight top-20 road test for the Huskies, who dropped a 4-1 decision in their last match at then-No. 11 Michigan last weekend in Ann Arbor. Han-Chih Lin picked up the one singles win, which completed a 2-0 road weekend for the senior, as he also had a victory in UW’s 6-1 win at Wisconsin.
ย 
This week in the ITA rankings, juniors Dzianis Zharyn and Cesar Bouchelaghem moved up to the No. 10 spot in the doubles rankings, a new high for the duo, and the first Huskies in the doubles top-10 since 2005.
ย 
The Toreros are coming off a pair of big home wins over Pac-12 opponents, knocking off Arizona and Arizona State, both by 4-3 scores, when UA was ranked 10th and ASU was 18th. Their one loss was 3-4 on the road against another Pac-12 opponent, USC, in the ITA Kickoff Weekend final. San Diego has one of the top-ranked singles players in the nation, Oliver Tarvet, currently ranked No. 3 with a 14-2 record on the year. Also ranked is Iiro Vasa, at No. 52, and in doubles, the duo of Sacchitt Sharrma and Stian Klaassen are ranked No. 21.
ย 
After taking on the Toreros, the Dawgs will be back home next Saturday, Feb. 17, to host Arkansas at 1 p.m.
