Hoosiers and Boilermakers Open Big Ten Play on Saturday
March 11, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The in-state rival will be renewed once again on Saturday, March 12, as the No. 47 Indiana women's tennis team heads to West Lafayette to face No. 57 Purdue. The match is set to begin at 11 a.m. ET.
The Boilermakers are led by the doubles combination of Mara Schmidt and Jennifer Rabot who together are ranked No. 18 in the latest ITA Women's National Doubles Rankings. As a team, Purdue is 6-3 on the year and are currently in the midst of a two-match losing skid.
Saturday's match also means a Crimson and Gold Cup point will be on the line as Indiana currently leads the race, 7-5. Another point for the cup is also up for the taking this weekend as the men's tennis team host the Boilers on Saturday.
The Hoosiers hope to rebound after a tough loss last week to then-No. 14 Notre Dame. Indiana is 10-3 on the season as it heads into conference play.
