The match against Memphis will be the second of the weekend for the Tribe after it opens with Boston University on Saturday, March 27. The Tribe and Terriers are slated for an 11 a.m. start at the Busch Tennis Courts.

The Green and Gold is coming off a split against a pair of nationally ranked ACC foes in No. 52 Wake Forest and No. 5 Duke. The College upset No. 52 Wake Forest, 4-3, following senior Ragini Acharya’s win at the No. 1 singles positions. After claiming the doubles point, junior Lauren Sabacinski and freshman Anik Cepeda each tallied singles wins before Acharya clinched the victory. The Tribe gave Duke all it could handle in a 6-1 setback. W&M claimed the doubles point on the strength of senior Carmen Pop and Cepeda’s upset win over the No. 25-ranked doubles team in the country. A trio of singles matches went three sets, before the Blue Devils pulled out the win.

Boston University is 7-8 on the year and recently had its five-match winning streak snapped at the hands of No. 28 Princeton on March 21. Memphis is 8-12 on the season and is coming off a 6-1 win over Tennessee-Martin on March 19. The Tigers will face Richmond on March 27, before making the trip to Williamsburg.
