PROVO -- BYU will look to build on last week’s 4-3 win over Nevada with three road matches this week. The No. 61 women’s tennis team will face Kansas, Kansas State and No. 73 Oklahoma State.

BYU will begin the weekend against Kansas State Thursday. The Wildcats are coming off a 6-1 win over UALR that improved them to 3-2 on the season. The Cougars dropped only one singles match in last year’s 6-1 victory against KSU at home.

The squad will have a quick turnaround, facing Kansas Friday. The Jayhawks currently own a 5-3 record. They earned their fifth win of the season last week in a 7-0 sweep of UMKC. The Cougars defeated Kansas 7-0 last year in what Manning called one of the best performances of the year up to that point.

Saturday will bring another match, this one against No. 73 Oklahoma State. The Cowgirls most recent result was a 7-0 sweep of Abilene Christian, and they are now 5-4. BYU last met Oklahoma State in 2007, and the Cougars took the match 6-1.

The match against Kansas begins at 11 a.m. Thursday. Friday’s and Saturday’s matches both start at 1 p.m.
