SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The 21st-ranked UC San Diego men's tennis team was shutout by the University of San Diego Saturday morning, dropping a 7-0 decision at the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center.

USD, ranked 26th among NCAA Division I squads, took all six singles match-ups and won the doubles point.

UCSD was competitive in the bottom half of the singles ladder. Ganesh Alagappan battled at No. 4 before falling to Ciaran Fitzgerald by scores of 6-4 and 6-3. At No. 5, Kona Luu lost the first set, 6-2, against Andrew Carlisle and was narrowly edged by a 7-6 score in the second frame. Horea Porutiu played at No. 6 versus Jakob Karnopp, winning the opening set handily, 6-2, before falling 7-5 in the second. 

At No. 1 singles, Triton Camill Salomon was defeated in straight sets (6-4, 6-1) by Romain Kalaydjian, who is currently ranked 62nd in the country.

Salomon and Devon Sousa filled the No. 1 doubles slot and lost, 8-2, to Clarke Spinosa and Thibaut Visy.

"We had chances, we were competitive in singles at four, five and six," said UCSD head coach Timmer Willing. "We have some issues to work on, but overall I'm happy with the way we competed against a strong USD squad."

The Tritons are next in action on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at home as they entertain Concordia at 2 p.m. at Northview Courts. On Friday, Feb. 8, UCSD will host Westmont, also scheduled for a 2 p.m. start.
