LOS ANGELES- No. 52 Stanford saw its longest winning streak in three years come to an end, falling 7-0 to No. 2 USC on Friday afternoon.

Stanford (9-3, 2-1 Pac-12) entered the match having won six in a row, its longest winning streak since a 13-match stretch that spanned from March-May back in 2011.

USC (21-2, 3-0 Pac-12) pulled out a hard-fought doubles point after Stanford built some early leads and remained competitive at all three spots.

The Trojans’ momentum then carried into singles with six straight-set victories.

John Morrissey gave Yannick Hanfmann a battle at the No. 1 spot, falling 7-6 (4), 6-2.

Stanford closes out its road swing at No. 3 UCLA (16-2, 3-0 Pac-12) on Saturday at 1 p.m. This year’s earlier meeting at Taube Family Tennis Stadium was cancelled due to rain. But the Cardinal might be able to gain some positive vibes from its abbreviated match against the Bruins, claiming the doubles point and winning first sets on four of six courts before the sides could not agree to shift the match indoors.
