The Arizona State Sun Devils will continue their spring 2008 home

duel campaign this weekend as they host the seventh-ranked

UCLA Bruins on Friday, February 22 at 1:30 pm and the No. 12

USC Women of Troy on Sunday, February 23 at noon. Both matches

will be played in Tempe at ASU's Whiteman Tennis Center.

flawless grabbing a 6-1 win after falling behind

to the Long Beach State 49ers.


Scouting the Bruins:

UCLA rolls into town with a stellar 7-1 record, with their only loss

to North Carolina coming at the USTA/ITA National Indoors. The

Bruins are a tower of strength in both singles and doubles with

three players ranked in singles, the highest No. 10 Rita Zalameda.

In doubles, they boast FOUR ranked teams as well.


The Women of Troy

The USC Women of Troy will face the Devils this weekend with a

potent line-up as well, as they've gone 6-2 on the season with

losses to powerhouses North Carolina and Georgia, also at the

ITA National Indoors. In their line-up look for marquee match-ups

against #17 Amanda Fink and #97 Gabriela Niculescu in singles

and the pair also team up as the #5 doubles team in the country

as well.
