UCLA makes its second-straight NCAA semifinal appearance and is one of two lower-seeded teams hailing from the Pac-10 Conference to upset the No. 2 and No. 1 tournament seeds in Sunday’s quarterfinals. The Bruins move on to face third-seeded Ohio State in the semifinals on Monday, May 18 at 1 p.m. (CT). The Ole Miss matchup lasted nearly five hours after a weather delay on Saturday pushed match play to Sunday.

UCLA Head Coach Billy Martin
“It turned out well for us, but it was just one heck of a great college tennis match. I didn’t think it looked good for us for a while. (Nick) Meister came back and won the second set in the tiebreaker which was very close. Both guys looked tired, but they were fighting their hearts out. I know my guy was starting to cramp a little bit and I think their player was too. Meister has won five or six last match third sets for us, just as a sophomore. I felt fairly confident that he’d want to be there. You want guys who like to be in that position.”

“Obviously, it (the doubles point) looks ultimately important, which it does in this tournament. On the first day, everyone that won the doubles point on the men’s side won the match. It really helps you, especially when you’re playing teams where you’re struggling to win three or four. It’s a tough task.”

Mississippi Head Coach Billy Chadwick
“We felt that before the season started, and most of the coaches agreed that UCLA was the most talented team in the country, and they showed that today. They’re very strong from top-to-bottom. It came down to the last match, and we had a couple of looks, and my hats off to all the players out there, it was a great college tennis match.”
