TUCSON , Ariz. ?C Back from a two game road trip in Texas, the Arizona menˇ?s tennis team defeated the No.?57 Minnesota Golden Gophers, 6-1, at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center.

?

Playing with a sense of confidence, the Cats are showing fans that they will a force to be reckoned with as the season progresses.

?

ˇ?Iˇ?m really proud of the way the guys have been playing lately, said head coach Tad Berkowitz.? In beating a competitive team like Minnesota today, I think we are proving that we are a team on the rise.ˇ±

Arizona captured the doubles point by sweeping all three matches to start things off.

?

Already ahead 1-0, the Cats continued their solid play as the match was never in question.

?

Ravid Hazi has been persistent in singles matches all year and Sunday was no different. He handily won in straight sets over Chi-lang Pham; 6-1, 6-1.

?

Another singles match of note for Arizona was Andres ˇ®Nachoˇ? Carrasco defeating Sebastian Gallego; 6-3, 6-2.

?

Arizona improves its record to 7-1 as Minnesota falls to 1-6.

?

Up next for the Cats will be another home match tomorrow against the San Diego State Aztecs starting at 12 p.m.

?

The Cats and Aztecs are very familiar with each other through playing many individual matches over the fall season, so it should be interesting when the two go at each other in a dual match setting.
