Max de Vroome Named Pac-12 Player of the Week|
Feb. 5, 2013
Freshman Max de Vroome extended his win streaks in singles and doubles with solid victories in USC's five dual matches this past week. For his winning efforts, de Vroome has earned his first career selection as Pac-12 Player of the Week.
De Vroome continued his success with teammate Roberto Quiroz in pounding out five straight doubles wins last week. In singles, de Vroome also added five more wins to hold seven in a row thanks to his five straight-set wins on the singles courts. De Vroome had the clinching wins in both USC victories in a doubleheader against Cal Poly and UC Irvine early in the week, and would go on to wrap up a winning week with his victories against Texas, San Francisco and LMU as the week progressed. With his seven-match streaks in singles and doubles, de Vroome is 18-7 overall in singles and 12-2 with Quiroz in doubles.
De Vroome is the second straight Trojan to be named men's Pac-12 Player of the Week, following Emlio Gomez' win last week.
The Trojans host two Pac-12 teams this weekend at Marks Stadium. USC will first face California at 1:30 p.m. on Friday (Feb. 8) and then take on Stanford at 1 p.m. on Saturday (Feb. 9).
