OXFORD, Miss. -- This Saturday is the perfect opportunity to come to campus before the basketball game and check out the No. 35 nationally ranked Ole Miss women's tennis team (2-1) square off against Jacksonville State (1-0) at 10 a.m. at the Gillom Sports Center.
All fans will receive a free collectable poster of Ole Miss senior Caroline Rohde-Moe, and one lucky fan will receive a gift card for correctly guessing the ending time of doubles play.
"We are looking forward to playing at home again," head coach Mark Beyers said. "Hopefully a lot of fans will come over to the Gillom center before the men's basketball game. We learned a lot about this team over the weekend, and we need these matches to continue to get better and prepare ourselves for the SEC season."
The Rebels are coming off an impressive 4-0 shutout of William & Mary at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend last Sunday. They won the doubles point, with the No. 19 ranked duo of Caroline Rohde-Moe/Marija Milutinovic winning 6-2, and Julia Jones/Zalina Khairudinova winning 6-0. Singles winners included Khairudinova (6-1, 6-1), Mai El Kamash (6-0, 6-1) and Milutinovic (6-0, 6-1). The Rebels also earned wins in all first sets of the unfinished matches.
The Gamecocks finished last season with a 15-11 record, and just recently won their opening match against 2013 NAIA Championship runner-up, William Carey University, 7-0.
Following the match on Saturday, Ole Miss will take a break and return to action in Oxford on Friday, February 21, with a doubleheader against Lipscomb and Tennessee State.
