Women's Tennis Travels to Georgia For NCAA Championships

ATHENS, Ga. - The No. 14 Virginia women's tennis team begins play at the 2012 NCAA Championships on Thursday as women's round of 16 play is held at the Dan Magill Tennis Center on the campus of the University of Georgia. The Cavaliers (20-7) will play third-seeded Duke (27-2) in a match beginning at 4 p.m. Links to NCAA live scoring and streaming video will be available by clicking here.

The Cavaliers are making their second consecutive trip to the NCAA Round of 16 after making their debut last year. Their 20 wins tie the school record set last season and earlier this year Virginia reached a school-record No. 6 national ranking.

Virginia advanced to the round of 16 with a pair of wins last weekend in the Charlottesville regional. The Cavaliers downed Fairleigh Dickinson 4-0 in the first round, followed by a 4-1 win over Tennessee in the second round.

The round of 16 match will be the third of the season between the Cavaliers and Blue Devils. In the regular season match on March 23 at the Snyder Tennis Center, Duke edged Virginia 4-3, marking the only time an ACC foe won three points against the Blue Devils this season. The teams met again last month in the ACC semifinals in Cary, N.C., a 4-0 Duke victory. Virginia is looking to snap Duke's 13-match win streak in the series, dating back to a 5-2 Cavalier win in Charlottesville in 2006.

The winner of the Virginia-Duke match will play the winner of the Georgia-Texas match in the quarterfinals. That match would be on Saturday at 4 p.m.
