Men's Soccer Selected To NCAA Tournament
Nov. 13, 2000
The UCLA men's soccer team will face fourth-seeded San Diego in the first round of the NCAA Men's Soccer Championships. The game will take place at San Diego at a date and time to be determined.
The Bruins (12-6-0) received an at-large bid into the tournament, extending their streak to 18 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances. The Toreros (15-1-2) earned an automatic bid by virtue of their West Coast Conference Championship.
'We're excited because for the time in a long time there were some questions going into the selection. It was more in the hands of the committee this year than ever before,' said UCLA head coach Todd Saldaï¿½a. 'San Diego is traditionally one of the top teams in the region. They've had a good run this season, and they are a tough team at home.'
The two teams met last season in the NCAA first round at UCLA, with the Bruins winning 4-1 behind two goals by McKinley Tennyson Jr. UCLA leads the all-time series, 13-2-2 and has won three straight against the Toreros.
