LIVE SCORING: Texas A&M | Missouri

OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 29 ranked Ole Miss women’s tennis team closes out the regular season this weekend at No. 10 Texas A&M and Missouri.  The Rebels will face the Aggies Friday at 5 p.m. at the George P. Mitchell Tennis Center.

At 12-7 overall and 5-6 in conference play, the Rebels are looking to get back in the win column in the SEC, after dropping both matches last weekend to South Carolina and No. 7 Florida.

The Rebels are led by junior Julia Jones, who entered the singles rankings this week after two ranked wins last weekend, including No. 23 ranked Alex Cercone of Florida.  Jones has won six in a row and is 24-9 overall, 11-4 at No. 3 singles.  In her 24 wins, she has not dropped a set.

“We just need to keep doing what we are doing, and we’ll be fine,” head coach Mark Beyers said.  “Obviously A&M is a tough team, but I feel confident that if we play at the level we did against Florida, we can be in the match.”

Texas A&M comes into the weekend at 15-5 overall, 8-3 in the SEC.  They are coming off a split of last weekend’s matches, falling to No.5 Alabama 4-1 and beating No. 21 Auburn 4-2.  The Aggies are currently undefeated at home with a 9-0 record.  They are led by are led by No. 8 ranked Cristina Stancu, who is riding a 10-match win streak in singles and is 7-0 in SEC matches.

On Sunday, the Rebels will travel to Columbia, Mo., for a 1 p.m. match against Missouri.  The Tigers are currently sitting in last place in the SEC and are the lone member of the conference yet to record a league win this season.  They will host the SEC Tournament, which begins Wednesday, April 16.
