Junior Josh Finkelstein was selected as one of the Big West Men's Tennis Tri-Athletes of the Week along with UC Davis sophomore Nick Lopez and UC Riverside freshman Austin Andres. The native from Los Angeles registered two wins over the weekend against the No. 41 University of South Florida. The first came in doubles, where the Gauchos' team co-captain teamed with sophomore Alex Konigsfeldt to capture an 8-5 win over USF's Wael Kilani and Romain DeRidder. For an encore, Finkelstein pulled out a dramatic 6-7, 7-6, (13-11) victory over Yannick Yoshizawa at the singles No. 6 position. The Gaucho's record is 1-0 in singles dual match competition and 1-2 at the doubles No. 2 slot.
