Junior Bijan Hejazi received Big West Athlete of the Week honors after his performance against the University of Oregon on Sunday, Feb. 24.
Before defeating Marco Verdasco 4-6, 6-3 (10-8) at the No. 1 slot, Hejazi teamed with Senior Nigel Barton to record a spectacular come-from-behind victory over Oregon's Francisco Gallardo and Stephen Wiechert, 9-8. The win clinched the doubles point for the Gauchos while providing an emotional lift going into singles competition.
Hejazi, who was named to the All-Big West First Team in singles for the last two years, is an even 3-3 in singles play after losing to 44th-ranked Harel Srugo of UCLA, 6-4, 6-3.
