PROVO, Utah (March 19, 208) -- After consecutive weekends at home, the BYU men's tennis team will join seven other teams at the Boise State Spring Break Invitational on Friday and Saturday. Host No. 35 Boise State, along with Ball State, Georgia State, Portland, Nevada, No. 65 Wichita State and Yale, will join the Cougars over the two-day event. BYU is scheduled to face Nevada in the first round.
Western Athletic Conference member Nevada enters this weekend's tournament with a 2-8 record on the season. In their last match, the Wolf Pack fell 6-0 to Mississippi State on March 15.
The Cougars are currently on a four-match winning streak; most recently posting back-to-back wins over Pacific and Portland last Friday. After dropping the doubles point in its first four matches of the season, BYU has turned things around, winning four of its last five.
BYU's match against Nevada will begin at 9 a.m. on Friday at the Crane Creek Country Club, with the winner set to face either Wichita State or Ball State at 1:30 p.m. later that day.
