PROVO, Utah—After two wins at home this weekend, the No. 44 BYU men’s tennis team will travel to face New Mexico on Friday.

“The most important match for us right now is the one in front of us,” BYU head coach Brad Pearce said. “New Mexico is a very good team at home, so they’ll be tough. However, we have great leadership this year and our players are stepping up when they are needed. We need to keep this up for the rest of the season and we have to stay hungry for the goals we set.”

BYU (11-1, 2-0 WCC) is coming off of home victories against Portland and Gonzaga. The Cougars are 3-1 on the road this season.

New Mexico (5-10, 0-0 MWC) is 2-0 this season at home. Both of those wins came last weekend against DePaul and the University of Utah.
