WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - USC sophomore Dejan Cvetkovic has been named the Pac-10 Men's Tennis Player of the Week for Mar. 6 - 12, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Cvetkovic, from Montreal, Quebec, posted the Trojan's lone victory on the singles court last week, when he upset No. 48 Matija Zgaga of Baylor. Cvetkovic won in three sets, 6-1, 7-6 (5), 6-2 at the No. 1 singles position. The sophomore, who did not compete for USC in 2005, was a six-time Canadian National Indoor and Outdoor Champion and was ranked as high as the No. 2 singles player under 18 years old in Canada in 2001.
