UNLV took two of three doubles matches to go up 1-0, then went up 3-0 with a wins from Ace Matias at No. 1 singles and Gilad Berman at No. 3 singles.

But the Aztecs won the other four singles matches — including three that went three sets — to squeak out the Mountain West victory and end a long run for the Rebels (13-5, 1-1 MW), who were 12-0 at home.
