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.

“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.
