Klöv-Nilsson, playing up at No. 4 for the first time this season, continued his standout play in a 6-1, 6-3 triumph to improve to 7-0 this season. The UO sophomore has dropped just 23 games in seven matches this season.

Quotable: “New Mexico is a very good team and it was a battle from start to finish. Once again, I think our grit paid off in the end, and Manu and Josh were incredible in the third sets to close it out for us.” – head coach Nils Schyllander
Notable: Eighth different singles lineup in eight matches … Coste (6-0), Klov-Nilsson (7-0) remain undefeated in singles play
