PORTLAND, Ore.- The No. 56 University of Oregon men's tennis team took care of the University of Portland, 5-2 on Tuesday at the Louisiana-Pacific Tennis Center, completing the sweep of the Portland schools.

The Ducks (14-1) rolled through the doubles portion of the match with ease, outscoring the Pilots (11-4), 24-11.

Sophomore Robin Cambier and junior Jeff Mullen picked up their 14th victory of the season with an 8-6 win over Michel Hu Kwo and Alex Ferrero to move to a flawless 14-0 on the season.

"As we have all year, we played doubles with great intensity again today, as a matter of fact I think today might have been the most aggressive doubles we played all season long," said head coach Nils Schyllander.

With the doubles point in tow, Oregon ran into some problems in singles play as sophomore Alex Rovello and Mullen went down at No. 1 and No. 2, but Cambier picked up the pace for the Ducks at the No. 3 spot with a 6-0, 6-2 win over Geoff Hernandez.

Daniel Sardu pushed his match to three sets at the No. 4 spot after falling in the first set, but was able to take care of Ferrero, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.

"Dani and Robin showed up ready to go in singles once again," added Schyllander. "They have been rock solid so far this season."

UO was also able to get straight set wins at the No. 5 and No. 6 position from senior Jose Izquierdo and junior Aaron Clissold to close out the victory for the Ducks.

"It was nice to see us step up and take care of business in straight at the five and six positions," remarked Schyllander. "That's where we had some struggles earlier in the year and I am really pleased to see the progress and determination from those guys."

Oregon returns to the courts and Pac-12 action on Friday and Saturday against UCLA (3/30 at 1 p.m.) and USC (3/31 at 11 a.m.) at the Student Tennis Center.
