The University of Louisville women's tennis team are back in action for a two-game home stand this weekend at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center. The Cards play host to the Xavier Musketeers on Friday at 3 p.m. and then the Eastern Michigan Eagles on Sunday at noon.
The Cards (6-7) are coming off a road win at San Diego State (5-2) on March 15, and are looking to build off that momentum this weekend against a streaking Xavier squad who has won 7 of the past 8 matches on their way to a 10-4 over all record.
On Sunday, U of L will play a struggling Eastern Michigan squad who are 4-10 on the season. The Eagles are coming off a 7-0 defeat at the hands of the #54 Penn State Nittany Lions on March 17.
The Cards after their home stand this weekend will travel up to Milwaukee to face conference foe Marquette on April 1. Following the Marquette match up the Cardinals return home for a four-match home stand that will finish off the regular season. During the home stand the Cards will take on conference rivals Cincinnati and Notre Dame.
