Memphis to Host UT Martin Saturday in Opening Round of NCAA Tournament
Nov. 7, 2011
The Lady Tigers, winners of five-straight Conference USA Tournament titles, are one of just two unbeaten teams at the Division I Women's Soccer level. The U of M is led by C-USA Offensive Player of the Year Christabel Oduro and her 12 goals and 30 points. Defensively, Memphis has a single-season school record 14 shutouts.
UT Martin claimed their first Ohio Valley Conference Championship on Sunday and makes their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Riding a six-game win streak, the Skyhawks are led by Rosaelia Loza with nine goals and 22 points.
Saturday's match up will be the ninth meeting between the two programs. Memphis carries a 7-1 advantage in the series, but the two programs haven't met since the 2007 season.
More information will be made available as soon as possible.
