Brooklyn, playing out of the No. 1 position in singles, remained undefeated (5-0) over the weekend to lead the Sun Devils to victories on the road over Marquette and Northwestern and maintain their undefeated record in dual match play (5-0). On Saturday, Brooklyn battled back from a set down to take his match against Trent Hagan of Marquette 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (10-7), leading the Sun Devils to a 4-3 victory. In Sunday's 6-1 team victory over Northwestern, Brooklyn defeated Northwestern's top player, Marc Dwyer, 6-2, 7-5.
