Puget Named Pac-10 Player of the Week

April 6, 2011

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - UCLA freshman Adrien Puget has been named Pac-10 Men's Tennis Players of the Week for Mar. 28- Apr. 3, Commissioner Larry Scott announced today.

Puget, from Le Haillan, France, picked up a big win at No. 1 doubles on Friday, helping the No. 16 Bruins to a 5-2 victory over No. 20 Washington at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. After each team split wins at court Nos. 2 and 3, the doubles point came down to court No. 1, where Puget and teammate Alex Brigham fought off two match points to upset 31st-ranked Kyle McMorrow and Jeevan Nedunchezhiyan, 9-8(7). Puget then notched a 6-0, 6-3 win in singles over Daniel Schmidt at court No. 5 to help put away the Huskies. Puget and Brigham were also victorious against Oregon on Saturday, downing Robin Cambier and Alex Rovello, 8-4 at court No. 1.

It marks Puget's first weekly honor and the 15th overall for UCLA.
