In a match that was played in a first-to-four-points format, the 52nd-ranked California men's tennis team fell to No. 14 Arizona State, 4-0, in their last dual match of the season. The contest was originally scheduled for April 10 in Berkeley, but was postponed due to rain.

The loss came just a day before the Pac-10 Championships begin here on Thursday and all but ends the Bears chances of making the postseason. Cal finishes the regular season with a 7-13 overall record, going 2-5 in Pac-10 play, while the Sun Devils finished the year with a 14-5 record (5-2 in Pac-10).

Arizona State made quick work of the Bears, taking all four decisive matches in straight sets. Adrian Barnes fell in the top spot to Jeff Williams, 6-1, 6-2 and Erik Dmytruk dropped the No. 3 match to Alex Osterrieth 6-4, 6-1. At No. 5, Chris Lewis fell to Matt Clinger, 6-1, 6-4.

Chris Santoso gave 44th-ranked Gustavo Marcaccio some trouble in the second set after losing the first, 6-4. But Marcaccio regained his composure and put Santoso away, 7-6, for the win at No. 2, giving the Sun Devils the first-to-four match. The No. 4 and 6 matches were not finished and doubles were not played.

Cal and Arizona State both return to action tomorrow at the Pac-10 Championships in Ojai. If Dmytruk and Osterrieth win their opening round matches tomorrow morning, they will face each other again tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
