PROVO -- For the second-consecutive week, fans will get a chance to watch the No. 65 BYU women’s tennis team when they play No. 55 Denver. The Cougars will take on the Pioneers Saturday at the BYU Indoor Tennis Courts.

“We’ve been very focused this week,” BYU coach Joey Johnson said. “We’ve had productive practices and we’re ready to go.”

BYU split matches last week, beating No. 74 Wichita State and losing to No. 60 Colorado. The 2-4 Cougars lost a close 4-3 match to DU last season in Denver, but BYU leads the overall record 3-2.

“The team has had some good talks about being able to keep intensity throughout the match and finishing,” Johnson said.

The Pioneers have a similar story this year with the team owning a 2-4 record and picking up one win and one loss last weekend. Denver defeated Pacific 4-3 and fell to Saint Mary’s 2-5.

Match play begins at noon Saturday at the BYU Indoor Tennis Courts, located south of the Smith Fieldhouse. Admission is free and all BYU “Y Lot” parking lots are open to the public all day Saturday.
