On the singles side, 10th-ranked Burgic has won six matches in a row in the top spot for BU and has a 14-5 record. Jordaan Sanford captured the lone singles victory for the Lady Bears against the Aggies, winning in straight-sets over No. 55 Nazari Urbina.
Prairie View A&M (8-16) is coming off of a 4-3 win against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. Led by Brittany Harrell, the team is 24-47 in the top three spots in singles action. In doubles, the Panthers are 30-41 in dual-match play.
Baylor leads the all-time series 2-0 vs. the Lady Panthers. The last time these two teams met, BU came out with a 5-2 win on Jan. 20, 2012 at the Hurd Tennis Center.
Kansas (8-5, 0-3) enters the weekend after a 4-3 loss to Kansas State. In singles, the Jayhawks are 16-14 in the top three spots, with Dylan Windom leading the team with a 9-4 dual match record. On the doubles side, KU is led by its duo of Paulina Los and Maria Belen Ludueña, which is 11-2 in dual match play.
