Berkeley - Due to the threat of rain, California men's tennis coach Peter Wright opted to play the singles matches before doubles. But after a decisive victory in singles play, the Bears decided to forego doubles, handing the Owls a 5-1 defeat Sunday at Hellman Tennis Center on the Berkeley campus. The Bears improved to 4-2 after completing a weekend sweep of UC Santa Barbara, Northwestern and Rice.

Playing in the No. 1 slot for the third match in a row, senior Chris Santoso upset 15th-ranked Efe Ustendag 7-6, 1-6, 6-3. Sophomore Adrian Barnes defeated Robert Collins in straight sets, 6-2, 6-0, at the No. 2 slot, as did Scott Kintz in the No. 4 match, prevailing over Shane Stone, 6-3, 6-3. No. 2 player Erik Dmytruk and No. 4 player Andrey Vinogradsky both earned victories for the Bears as well. Rice's lone singles victory came in the No. 5 match, as Prakesh Venkatarmon defeated Chris Lewis, 6-1, 6-1.
