   No. 1 Clay Thompson of UCLA will play teammate Marcos Giron, ranked 11th, today for the singles title.
   Meanwhile, the Saint Mary's men defeated Fresno State 4-3 in Moraga in the San Francisco Bay Area. Freshman Nathan Lewis won the deciding match, beating Nikolas Papic 6-0, 3-6, 6-2 at No. 5 singles.
