BYU looks to extend win streak at home this weekend
PROVO, Utah—Coming off of three straight wins, the BYU men’s tennis team looks to extend its winning streak to five this weekend against Weber State and Nevada.
The Cougars will face in-state rival Wildcats on Friday evening and the Wolfpack Saturday. Both matches will be at 5:30 pm MST in Provo at the Indoor Tennis Courts.
"We're looking forward to playing two good teams in front of our awesome home crowd this weekend," BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. "There really is no place like home!"
Weber State (0-0) was recently selected to finish first in the Big Sky Conference in their preseason polls. They have yet to play a match during the 2016 season but competed in four different preseason tournaments during the fall. Weber State sophomore Hou-En “Edward” Chan faced BYU sophomore Scott Bohne during the ITA Regional tournament in October. Bohne lost to Chan in three sets 2-6, 6-2, 1-6.
Nevada (1-0) comes to Provo after a 6-1 victory at UC Riverside last Saturday. The team boasts four seniors, a junior, three sophomores and a freshman.
Admission to both matches is free. Free pizza will be provided at both events and fans that come before 5:30 will be entered into a drawing for prizes, such as a Roger Federer poster. Live stats and video will be provided for both matches on the BYU men's tennis schedule page.
