LOS ANGELES - For the second time this season the third-ranked UCLA women's tennis team dispatched of cross-town rival No. 6 USC, as the Bruins notched a 5-2 road victory over the Women of Troy at the Marks Tennis Stadium on the campus of USC on Friday. With the win, UCLA improves to 11-1 on the season, having also defeated USC, 4-0 at the ITA National Team Indoors back on Feb. 8 in Charlottesville, Va.

Friday's doubles point featured four of the top teams in the nation, with top-ranked Robin Anderson and Jennifer Brady of UCLA leading the way. The Bruin duo clinched the point for UCLA at court No. 1, where they downed sixth-ranked Giuliana Olmos and Zoe Scandalis, 8-6. Prior to that victory, UCLA's 11th-ranked Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips took care of business at court No. 2, pulling off a slight upset over eighth-ranked Brynn Boren and Zoe Katz, 8-3.

Similar to doubles, UCLA got off to a great start in singles play on Friday, posting first set wins on five of six courts. Harrison breezed in her match with Kaitlyn Christian and court No. 5, losing just one game in a 6-1, 6-0 victory to put the Bruins ahead 2-0. Not long after Harrison's win, UCLA found itself up 3-0 following another straight set performance, this time by Brady, who downed Olmos, 6-3, 6-1 at the No. 3 spot.

McPhillips would get the honor of clinching UCLA's victory at the No. 4 position, where she was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over Zoe Katz.

Chanelle Van Nguyen was the final winner for UCLA on the day, downing Boren, 6-2, 6-4 at court No. 2. The Women of Troy (9-3) claimed their two points on the day with victories from Gabriella DeSimone and Zoe Scandalis at court Nos. 6 and 1, respectively.

The Bruins have the weekend off before hosting No. 18 Baylor on Monday at the Los Angeles Tennis Center. First serve is scheduled for 1:30 p.m.
