SAN JOSE, Calif. - San José State's women's tennis team returns to the courts after a 12-day hiatus when it visits the University of San Diego on Saturday.

The Spartans (5-4, 0-0 MW) are riding a two-match win streak after topping UC Santa Barbara (6-1) and Cal Poly (4-1) last weekend.

Sybille Gauvain went 2-0 on the weekend after defeating Santa Barbara's Jaimee Gilbertson (7-5, 6-3) and Cal Poly's Louise Oxvenad (6-2, 6-1) in straight sets. For her efforts, Gauvain was named the Mountain West Women's Tennis Player of the Week for matches played Feb. 11-17.

Malin Cubukcu also went 2-0 on the weekend playing at the No. 5 singles spot, moving her win streak to seven consecutive matches. The freshman's last singles loss came on Jan. 18, when she dropped a three-set match to then-No. 27 Tulsa's Renata Kuricova at the No. 6 spot.

Saturday's match marks the end of a span of six consecutive road matches for the Spartans, who host Southern Utah on March 10.

The Toreros' lone win of the season came in their first match of the spring, when they downed Cal State Fullerton 6-1. All three of USD's losses have come at the hands of ranked opponents, as No. 56 Hawai'i, No. 51 Washington and No. 37 Arizona all visited San Diego and came away victorious. The Toreros have taken three-of-four doubles points on the season and feature a pair of doubles tandems that have three wins this spring.
