    BOULDER - Colorado's tennis team is set to host No. 20 UCLA and No. 27 Southern California this weekend. CU will take on UCLA on Friday at 1:30 p.m. at the Rocky Mountain Tennis Center in Boulder. Sunday's match vs. USC will take place outdoors at 11 a.m. at CU's South Campus Tennis Complex, weather permitting.

    The Buffaloes (6-11, 1-5 Pac-12) are led this season by 74th-ranked Nuria Ormeño Ruiz, who has a 20-9 overall record and is 5-4 at the No. 1 singles position. She and Jeannez Daniel have also moved into the No. 1 doubles position together, posting a 4-2 mark so far.

    UCLA (11-4, 3-1 Pac-12) is ranked No. 20 in this week's national rankings. The Bruins have played a brutal schedule, facing just two unranked opponents so far in their 15 matches. Catherine Harrison is the team's leader, ranked No. 18 nationally and holding a 24-8 record. She and Kyle McPhillips are the seventh-ranked doubles pair in the nation and are 12-1 together.

    USC (8-4, 3-0 Pac-12) is ranked 27th this week. Giuliana Olmos is the 22nd-ranked player in the country and is 14-9 overall, including 9-3 at the No. 1 position. Olmos and Gabby Smith are ranked eighth nationally in doubles.

    Article on the 6-1 loss to the Bruins- http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210857003

    BOULDER – After a long four-match road trip the University of Colorado women’s tennis team finally returned home to Boulder, only to drop their match 6-1 against another tough Pac-12 opponent the No. 20 UCLA Bruins, on Friday afternoon at the Rocky Mountain Tennis Center.

    The loss drops CU’s record on the season to 6-12 (1-6 Pac-12), and UCLA’s victory improves its record to 12-4 (4-1 Pac-12).

    “UCLA is a traditional powerhouse in the Pac-12,” said CU head coach Nicole Kenneally. “And today I really felt like we had some opportunities that we kind of let slip by us. We continue to put ourselves in great opportunities, and in those moments, we need to continue to play out games and make our competitors earn it from us, while we know we have to earn it from them.”
