COLUMBIA, S.C. – The University of South Carolina women’s tennis team looks to improve to 2-0 on the 2006 season when it hosts Davidson Sunday, Jan. 29, at 1 p.m. at the Maxcy Gregg Tennis Center. In the case of inclement weather, the match will be moved to the USC Indoor Tennis Facility.

South Carolina is ranked 22nd in the nation and owns a 4-0 all-time record against Davidson. The Gamecocks last played the Wildcats when they opened the 2004 spring season with a 7-0 victory.

South Carolina extended its home-opening win streak to 15 with a 7-0 sweep of the College of Charleston Wednesday. Picking up wins in singles were 59th-ranked Gira Schofield, a freshman; senior Danielle Wiggins; sophomore Megan McGavock; freshman Natasa Vuckovic, ranked 62nd; redshirt sophomore Grace Blakely; and junior Miranda Gutierrez.

“I think we played a pretty good match against College of Charleston,” head coach Arlo Elkins said. “We hope to improve from match to match and we’ll try to play outside [Sunday] if the weather allows it.”

Davidson is 1-1 on the season after losing its first match to No. 11 North Carolina, 7-0, Jan. 14. The Wildcats then claimed their first win of the spring Thursday with a 4-3 home upset over No. 71 Winthrop.

The Gamecocks will play Furman at home Jan. 31 before traveling to College Park, Md. for matches against Maryland Feb. 3 and Michigan Feb. 4.
