Brian Hung, Michigan
Sr., Hong Kong, China/Sagemont Virtual School
Hung earned his third career weekly honor after leading Michigan to a 5-2 upset over 12th-ranked Texas on Saturday, marking the Wolverines' first win over a Top 25 opponent since March 27, 2002. The victory catapulted Michigan into to the top quarter of the national poll for the first time since finishing the 2000 season at No. 23.
Ranked 59th in the nation, Hung posted a 6-4, 6-3 victory over Dimitar Kutrovksy at No. 1 singles to give Michigan a 3-0 lead in the match. It was the Hong Kong native's second straight win at the top spot and his fourth victory in a row. Hung and Matko Maravic, the second-ranked doubles team in the nation, earned a 9-7 win over Miguel Reyes Varela and Jon Wiegand at No. 1 doubles to clinch the first team point for the Maize and Blue. The pair boasts a team-best 11-2 record in 2006-07, including 3-0 in dual action, and has been victorious in five straight matches.
This marks the first selection for a Wolverine since Hung claimed the award March 15.
