LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Boise State sophomore Abe Hewko will play for two titles on Sunday at the Larry Easley Memorial Classic in Las Vegas, Nev. Saturday afternoon Hewko defeated Arizona's Matthew Dunn in straight sets 6-4, 6-3 to earn a chance to win his first collegiate tournament singles title as a Bronco. The Palm Desert, Calif., native will face Northern Arizona's Adi Zilberstein for the championship at 12 p.m. (Mountain) Sunday. 
The Boise State doubles team of Hewko and Lewis Roskilly will also play for a title, the first for both, on Sunday after sweeping a pair of matches Saturday. The duo saw their first action of the tournament this afternoon after having a first round bye on Friday. The Bronco tandem opened with a dominating 8-1 quarterfinal victory over Matthew Dunn and Shoki Kasahara from Arizona. They then defeated Oregon's Jayson Amos and Daniel Sardu 8-4 in the semifinals. Hewko and Roskilly now advance to Sunday's title match where they will play Mountain West Conference opponents Ace Matias and Denys Pume from UNLV at 11 a.m. (MT). 
Lewis Roskilly also recorded a victory on Saturday in singles defeating Northern Arizona's Kester Black in two sets 6-1, 6-2 in a consolation match. Also competing in the consolation bracket was Brian Foley. The junior lost a tough match in a 10-point tiebreak after rallying from one set down to Grand Canyon's Philip Kuehnen 7-5, 6-7 (5), 1-0 (11-9). 
Both Roskilly and Foley will play again on Sunday. Roskilly will take on Shoki Kasahara from Arizona at 12 p.m. (MT), while Foley will play Oregon's Jayson Amos at 11 a.m. (MT).
