No. 34 Longhorns take on No.36 Northwestern


Texas welcomes Northwestern to Whitaker Courts on Monday where the Longhorns will fight to keep their undefeated home record alive.

No. 34 Texas might pose a threat to Northwestern. The Wildcats are 3–7 overall against ranked teams, with only one of their three victories being against a team ranked higher than the Longhorns.

Texas faces Northwestern just after its first Big 12 win against Kansas State last week. 

Currently, the Wildcats are 3–5 in away matches and are coming to Austin riding a two game losing streak. 

The Wildcats have a pair of ranked players, sophomores No. 40 Maddie Lipp and No. 81 Erin Larner, who are also part of the two ranked doubles tandems Northwestern has. 

In terms of rankings, Texas’ standout senior Breaunna Addison dropped from the top ten to No. 12. The doubles duo of Addison and sophomore Dani Wagland also fell four spots to No. 17.

Play begins at noon on Monday in Austin, Texas.
