WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - WASHINGTON senior Jean-Noel Insausti has been named the Pac-10 Men's Tennis Player of the Week for Apr. 10 - 16, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.
Insausti, from Souraide, France, helped Washington to a sweep of the Los Angeles schools last weekend, notching two three-set tiebreak singles wins, including the clinching match in the Huskies' upset over No. 7 UCLA.
