Marshall (2-3) enters the weekend on a three-game losing tilt and will face a pair of teams that dealt the Thundering Herd 7-0 sweeps during the 2012 season. 

Purdue (1-1) defeated No. 32 Washington State 4-3 in its season opener two weeks ago but fell to No. 14 Northwestern 4-3 the very next day.  

Serving in the Boilermaker’s number one spot, sophomore Lynda Xepoleas is 0-2 this season despite owning a No. 80 ITA ranking.  No. 108 Mara Schmidt is 1-1 at number two. 

Miami (Ohio) enters the weekend 2-4 with wins coming over Cincinnati and California (Pa.).  In their season opener, the Redhawks fell to No. 49 Indiana 7-0.  More recently, Miami suffered a tightly-contested loss to Xavier. 

Marshall is led by junior Karli Timko and freshman Dana Oppinger, who have each taken three victories in singles action.  Oppinger is 3-0 at five singles.

Marshall’s number one doubles duo of Dominika Zaprazna and Maria Voscekova has won its last two matches, including an 8-4 triumph over Indiana’s nationally ranked pair its last time out.
