Despite losing the doubles point, the Wildcats climbed back to win three singles matches in straight sets before Illinois clinched the victory. The Fighting Illini travel to Tucson for the first time since 2002. The ‘Cats have yet to lose a contest against the NM State Aggies and swept them 7-0 during their last match in Las Cruces, N.M. Arizona aims to continue their perfect streak against NM State and find revenge against Illinois tomorrow in the doubleheader matchups.
