WALNUT CREEK, Calif.- Utah's Slim Hamza was honorably mentioned as the Pac-12 Conference announced its postseason men's tennis all-conference teams. The sophomore from Kairouan, Tunisia ended the season with a 22-11 record mainly from the No. 2 singles position and reached as high as No. 37 on the ITA National Rankings.

Hamza, a second team all-conference selection last season, became the first Ute to receive Pac-12 honors in consecutive seasons. Phillip Ellers was the last Utah student-athlete to earn all-conference honors in consecutive seasons (2009-10) when the team played in the Mountain West Conference. Hamza now has a chance to be the first three-time conference award winner since Zach Ganger (2005-08).
