Cal men upset Arizona State for BNP title

   Two British freshmen lifted the third-seeded Cal men to a 4-3 victory over top-seeded Arizona State on Sunday in the final of the BNP Paribas Open Collegiate Tennis Challenge at Indian Wells.
   With 39th-ranked Cal trailing 3-2, Ben Draper defeated William Kirkman 6-3, 4-6, 6-0 on Court 5. Then Jack Molloy beat Tim Ruehl of 26th-ranked Arizona State 6-4, 6-4 on Court 3.
   The tournament coincided with the last three days of the BNP Paribas Open professional tournament at Indian Wells. Juan Martin del Potro of Argentina won the men's title, and 20-year-old Naomi Osaka of Japan took the women's crown.
   Cal (8-4) improved to No. 30 in the updated rankings, and Arizona State (10-6) dropped to No. 34.
