PITTSBURGH - With one match remaining before the Big East Tournament, the University of Pittsburgh tennis team (8-10) looks to win its regular-season finale on Friday afternoon at Carnegie Mellon (8-5). First serve is set for 4 p.m.
The Panthers will try to end their four match losing streak against the Tartans, a team Pitt historically fares well against. The Panthers are 29-2 all-time against CMU and have won the last 21 contests between the two schools.
Amanda Wickman and Kimmy Borza continue to lead the way for Pitt. Wickman has a team-best 14-4 singles record, while she has played to an overall doubles record of 11-7. Borza won three of her four matches last week, including both doubles matches, and now owns a team-best 13-5 doubles mark while playing alongside three different partners.
Wednesday's match marks the sixth time this season Pitt will have played outside. The Panthers are 3-2 in outdoor matches this season.
USF is set to host the Big East Tournament next week, April 18-20, in Tampa. The Panthers are 2-3 against Big East foes this season with wins against Villanova and Rutgers, and losses to Georgetown, Syracuse and Cincinnati. Pitt went 0-2 at last year's championship tournament.
