Tucson, Ariz. - The third-ranked UCLA men's tennis team posted its 20th-straight conference victory on Sunday, dispatching of Arizona, 4-0 at the LaNelle Robson Tennis Center. With the win, the Bruins (19-2; 6-0 Pac-12) are now one win away from the program's third-straight Pac-12 regular-season title.

UCLA began the day with wins at the top two courts to claim the one point awarded for doubles play. After freshmen Gage Brymer and Mackenzie McDonald notched an 8-6 victory at court No. 2, the point was clinched at court No. 1, where 67th-ranked Marcos Giron and Karue Sell were 8-3 winners over Naoki Takeda and Sumeet Shinde. UCLA's Michael Guzman and Clay Thompson were knotted at 7-7 with Arizona's Trevor James and Kieran Thompson when play was suspended.

The Bruins dominated singles play as well, quickly posting three-straight wins to clinch the 4-0 victory. Victories by Thompson (court No. 1), Brymer (court No. 4) and Ryoto Tachi (court No. 6) sealed the team's 19th victory of the season.

Sunday's win sets up a thrilling regular-season finale between UCLA and USC on Friday, as the Bruins and Trojans are both undefeated in conference play and the winner will take home this year's Pac-12 title. That match is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. at USC's Marks Tennis Stadium.
