Thousand Oaks, Calif. - UCLA's Alex Brigham and Marcos Giron both won consolation semifinal singles matches on Sunday, as Bruin men's tennis players concluded play at the 2012 Sherwood Collegiate Cup at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif.
Giron, who just recently returned to the court after suffering an injury in the fall, downed Baylor's Kike Grangeiro, 6-4, 6-3 in his semifinal match. Brigham's match only lasted five games, as he earned a spot in the final after his opponent, Stanford's Paul Morrissey, withdrew with an injury in the first set.
Because the consolation final features two players from the same school, it will not be contested.
Below are complete results from Sunday's competition.
