WACO, Texas - Baylor's 28th-ranked women's tennis team will travel to face 15th-ranked Texas Tech in its final regular season matchup at 2 p.m. on Sunday at the McLeod Tennis Center in Lubbock, Texas.
"Texas Tech is having another terrific season and without a doubt they're the team to beat in the conference," head coach Joey Scrivano said. "They're the defending Big 12 champs, and they have already clinched this year's title. We will have to compete harder and smarter to have any chance. Nothing is going to come easy for us on Sunday."
Baylor (14-13, 7-1) recently edged out the 26th-ranked Texas Longhorns, 4-3, on Friday at the Hurd Tennis Center. After clinching the doubles point for the ninth straight match, freshman Kiah Generette clinched the final point of the match for BU.
The 17th-ranked tandem of Ema Burgic and Victoria Kisialeva is BU's most successful pairing, owning a 15-3 dual match mark and a 6-2 Big 12 record. The remaining two pairings of Alex Clay and Jordaan Sanford and Alex Leatu and Generette have each won four matches in a row to improve to 4-2 and 4-3, respectively.
On the singles side, the 10th-ranked Burgic has won 13 matches in a row in the top spot for BU and has a 21-5 record. Generette, who has won five matches straight in the fourth spot, is also 13-8 in dual-match play. Burgic and Generette are each 8-0 in conference action.
Texas Tech (18-4, 8-0) is coming off of a 4-3 victory against TCU, which gave the Lady Raiders their second consecutive share of the Big 12 Conference title. Led by 93rd-ranked Samantha Adams, who is 4-3 in conference action, TTU holds an undefeated (8-0) record at home. Adams and Kenna Kilgo also make up Texas Tech's 15th-ranked doubles team, owning a 16-4 record at the top of the lineup.
Baylor leads the all-time series 22-11 against Texas Tech. The last time these two teams met, BU came out with a 4-3 win during the ITA Kick-Off Weekend on Jan. 27, 2013 at the Hurd Tennis Center. Overall, Baylor has won 21 of the last 23 matches vs. TTU.
The Lady Bears have a chance to share the Big 12 Conference title with Texas Tech if BU defeats the Lady Raiders on Sunday. BU is looking for its eighth conference title over the past nine years.
After the match, Baylor will travel to the Big 12 Championships from April 25-28 in Norman, Okla.
