By: UCLA Athletics
Flushing, N.Y. - UCLA senior Clay Thompson posted a win in his opening singles match at the USTA/ITA Intercollegiate Indoor Championships on Thursday afternoon at the USTA's Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

Thompson, the tournament's No. 6 seed, was a 6-3, 6-3 winner over Baylor's Diego Galeano. He will next face Carlos Lopez Villa of Old Dominion at Noon (EST) on Friday - LIVE STATS.

Bruin junior Marcos Giron fell in his opening-round singles match on Thursday, suffering a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 defeat to eighth-seeded Jared Hiltzik of Illinois. Giron will compete in the consolation draw on Friday (opponent TBA).

Giron and partner Mackenzie McDonald, the tournament's No. 3 seeded doubles team, suffered an 8-7(5) upset loss to Simon Felix and Deni Zmak of Embry-Riddle in the round of 16. Because Giron and McDonald received a first-round bye, they are not eligible for the consolation draw.
