Addison looks to make it seven straight against SMU


Breaunna Addison has been dominant since mid-March as she continues to impress in her first season at Texas.

The freshman from Florida holds a six-match winning streak, going back to her win at the University of San Diego two weeks ago, making a case for Big 12 Freshman of the Year with a 11-5 overall record (8-5 in dual match singles).

On Sunday, Addison will put her streak up against Southern Methodist University, barring an unanticipated flood in Austin.

Texas (8-8) hosts SMU (11-6) in its sixth match of a nine-match home stand. The two teams will get to play each other after rain canceled their match
last year.

Rain will not be a deterrent this time around, now that the Longhorns possess a backup facility indoors.

Texas is coming off its shutout of West Virginia. The team moved down two spots in the rankings to No. 24 after a 2-1 performance last week.

The last meeting between Texas and a Conference USA opponent came four weeks ago, when Rice upset the Longhorns. The Owls are one of the two teams that jumped Texas this week in the polls.

Texas and SMU begin play on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Penick-Allison Tennis Center.
