SEATTLE – Two more road matches take the Husky men’s tennis team to Boise, Idaho and Salt Lake City, Utah as UW plays its fifth and sixth consecutive matches away from home. Washington (6-9, 0-2 Pac-12) has been coming closer and closer to getting back in the win column and will look to break through starting Wednesday against the Broncos.
Tomorrow’s mid-week match at Boise State starts at 1 p.m. Pacific time. From there the Huskies go to take on Utah this Friday, Mar. 29, at 2 p.m. Pacific for the third Pac-12 dual of the season.
UW is looking to snap a five-match skid but the Dawgs have kept battling every time out, most recently dropping a 4-3 heartbreaker at 39th-ranked Pepperdine. That came after a 4-2 setback to a Santa Clara team currently ranked 54th.
The Broncos are 11-9 on the season, going 8-0 at home and 0-5 on the road and 3-4 in neutral matches, so the Dawgs will try to be the first to win in Boise this year. BSU defeated Utah State, 4-3, in its last match. They had a close 3-4 loss to then-No. 23 Arizona State, and a 4-3 win over then-No. 51 Liberty. Back in January, Boise State also had a 4-3 win over Oregon. Jip Van Assendelft is ranked 98th in singles and Samuel Sippel is ranked 110th. The two players together are ranked 31st in doubles.
The Utes are 3-11 coming off a close 3-4 loss at UNLV. Utah has yet to play a Pac-12 opponent. Last year Utah was the Pac-12 regular season co-Champions and made the NCAA tournament second round. Senior Geronimo Espin Busleiman was an NCAA Singles Championship qualifier last year and an All-Pac-12 First Team pick.
