PROVO, Utah – No. 60 BYU women’s tennis steps away from West Coast Conference play for a day Friday when they welcome No. 45 Rice University to Provo.

The Cougars (8-9, 3-4) lost a competitive match to No. 14 Pepperdine at home last Saturday in their most recent action and have gone 5-5 since beginning WCC play in mid-Frebrurary while battling injuries and ranked opponents. Morgan Anderson-Littlewood and Savannah Ware have both played strong tennis lately including wins in singles against Pepperdine on Saturday.

The Owls (9-7) come to Provo after a 4-0 loss to No. 7 Baylor last week but also posted a strong 5-2 win over No. 32 William & Mary at home the weekend before. Rice is led by the No. 21 singles player in the country, Natalie Beazant. Beazant was awarded her second Conference USA athlete of the week honor after the team's victory over William & Mary.

The match will begin at noon on the lower courts of the BYU outdoor courts in Provo on Friday. Live stats will be available through the women’s schedule page.
