April 17, 2013

Tournament Bracket | Match Notes

TAMPA, Fla. – The University of Pittsburgh tennis team (9-10, 2-3) is set to face Georgetown (14-6, 3-3) in the first round of the Big East Tournament hosted by USF on Thursday morning at 9 a.m. The Panthers earned the 10 seed in the tournament while the Hoyas are the seven seed.

The winner of this match will take on the winner of No. 2 USF vs. No. 15 Villanova.

PITT AND GEORGETOWN ROUND TWO:

The contest between the two schools will be a rematch from a February 2nd match in which Georgetown came out victorious 5-2. Pitt won the doubles point with victories on court two and three, while Molly Wickman was the only Panthers to win in singles. Wickman was triumphant on court six 6-3, 6-0 over Liz Hamlin.

RECAPPING THE REGULAR-SEASON:

The Panthers finished the regular-season campaign with an overall record of 9-10 and 2-3 in conference. Their signature win came against conference foe Rutgers, winning a 4-3 decision in mid-March. That win was the start of a four-match winning streak which was Pitt’s longest since the 2007-08 campaign. The win over Rutgers was also its first in program history.


 

 

Amanda Wickman led the Panthers in singles with a 15-4 overall record. She played the majority of her matches from the No. 4 position, and also saw some time at five and six. The Wickman twins also played every doubles match together this season and held a 12-7 record. Amanda Wickman’s 27 victories is a team-high.

Kimmy Borza led the Panthers in doubles. The junior had a team-best 13-6 mark while playing alongside three different partners, including an 8-1 mark with partner Gabrielle Catanzariti, but Catanzariti suffered a season-ending injury. Since then, Borza has played doubles with Taylor Washington and Karma Parbhu.
