Seventh-Seeded Tigers to Face #2 UAB in First Round of C-USA Tournament
Oct. 30, 2004
Memphis, Tenn. - With TCU having tied with Louisville on Saturday afternoon, the Memphis women's soccer team has moved into seventh place in Conference USA and will be the #7 seed in the conference tournament next week. They will now play the #2 seed UAB on Wednesday. Times for all games on Wednesday will be announced on Sunday.
The Tigers were defeated by the Blazers 2-1 two weeks ago on October 17 in Birmingham. That loss was the second in a four-game losing streak by the Tigers, which was broken with a 1-0 double overtime win over Cincinnati last night, which clinched a spot in the eight-team tourney for the Tigers. The win last night was the 11th of the year or the Tigers, which tied a school record for wins in a season set back during the 1997 season when Memphis went 11-10-1. With just one win in the tournament, the Tigers will set a school record for victories.
Memphis will be making its first C-USA Tournament appearance since the 2002 season. They will also be looking to win their first tournament game since that 1997 season, when the Tigers won their only tournament game in school history over DePaul. The Tigers have never met UAB in the C-USA Tournament.
