Emilio Gomez Named Pac-10 Player Of The Week
Jan. 31, 2011
In just his second week of competition with the Trojans, freshman Emilio Gomez has earned his first selection as Pac-10 Player of the Week. Gomez hit his stride in picking up three doubles and three singles victories in a winning week of action for USC.
Playing doubles with Daniel Nguyen, Gomez clinched the doubles point for USC in all three matches. In singles, Gomez fell in his first set during USC's midweek clash with #27 Florida State, but lost just six games in the next six sets played as he went 3-for-3 in singles action as well. His win against San Diego State clinched the match for the Trojans. Gomez opens his USC career with a 4-0 singles mark and a 5-0 run in doubles with Nguyen. USC is now 5-0 overall on the year.
