LAIE, Hawaii - No.5 UC Davis swept all three doubles matches and never looked back in defeating No.4 Hawaii-Hilo 5-0 on Friday in the first round of the NCAA Division II West Regional Men's Tennis Championships.

With the victory the Aggies improve to 6-12 on the season and now face top-ranked BYU-Hawaii on Saturday afternoon.
