duel campaign this weekend as they host the UC Santa Barbara

Gauchos. The matche is set for 11:00 a.m. on Sunday and will be

Last time out saw the Sun Devils come out swinging as they faced

their hardest competition yet as they took on the No. 12 USC

Women of Troy and the No. 7 UCLA Bruins. After a tough 5-2 loss

to USC, the Sun Devils

fired back on Sunday to come from behind

and take the win with a 4-3 toppling of the Bruins.

Scouting the Gauchos:

The Gauchos come into this weekend with a 3-1 record as they've

had three other matches cancelled due to rain. They come in with

a relatively solid singles set, but their true success lies in doubles

where they hold a 13-2 mark in doubles. The senior pair of Marta

Simic and Charlotte Scatliffe have also started the year red hot

in doubles play and remain a perfect 5-0 at the No. 1 slot for the


Series History

Against the Gauchos, the Sun Devils are 4-1 all-time.
