ITA National Team Indoor Recap
Lack of match play leading up to the event and travel delays heading into Virginia were two factors that didn't exactly help the Bruins last week in their quest for their first ITA National Team Indoor title since 2001. Despite all the setbacks, UCLA did manage to notch a 4-1 victory over No. 10 Kentucky on Friday in the round of 16 at the Boars Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va. The Bruins, however, lost their next two matches at the Indoors, falling 4-2 to eventual runner-up Tennessee in the quarterfinals, and 4-0 to top-ranked USC in a consolation match on Sunday.
