ABOUT THE MATCHES: Boise State women's tennis heads back on the road for two matches this weekend. The Broncos (4-3) will take on Portland Saturday, before facing No. 28 Oregon Sunday. Both matches will be played in Eugene, Ore., at the Student Tennis Center on the campus of the University of Oregon. The Sunday match against Oregon will be live streamed at GoDucks.com.
REVENGE ON THE MIND: For the second consecutive year Boise State and Portland will meet on a neutral site. Last year, the teams squared off in Seattle and the Pilots squeaked out a 4-3 victory. Portland took the doubles point before the teams split the singles matches. Returning Broncos Teal Vosburgh and Bobbi Oshiro both posted three-set wins during the match.
LEADING THE WAY: Boise State has been led this season by freshman Hanna Kantenwein and senior Bobbi Oshiro. Kantenwein is currently riding a four-match win streak and has a 5-2 singles record on the year, including a 3-0 mark at the No. 1 singles position. Oshiro is also 5-2 this season in singles competition and is 3-1 since moving up to No. 3 in the lineup. Kantenwein is 5-1 in doubles competition, winning three times on court two with fellow German Milena Toseva.
VS PAC-12: Boise State will take on its third Pac-12 opponent this season Sunday, when the Broncos face Oregon. Boise State previously dropped road matches against Colorado and Utah. Hanna Kantenwein took her singles match at No. 1 against Utah, the only point the Broncos have taken off of their Pac-12 foes thus far.
HIGHLY-RANKED OPPONENT: Boise State's meeting with No. 28 Oregon will mark the highest ranked opponent the Broncos have faced since taking on No. 8 Alabama last season at the Blue Gray National Tennis Classic.
