The Lady Govs earned an 11-day respite after playing two road matches at Chattanooga and Evansville, Feb. 8-9. At 0-3, the Lady Govs head into the first mid-week match seeking their first win for the 2013 dual schedule.
After being swept in their first two matches, the Lady Govs fell 5-2 at Evansville, with sophomores Ornella Di Salvo (No. 2) and Vanessa Tavares (No. 4) picking up their season's first victory. Head coach Ross Brown seeks his first win as coach of the Lady Govs.
