Despite dropping a match last week, Damira Muminović has earned a 3-2 singles record in her freshman campaign. Rehse and Muminović have the best doubles record of the Panther pairs at 4-4.

East Tennessee State visits Atlanta after dropping a close 4-3 decision on the road at Winthrop. Under head coach Ricardo Rojas, the Bucs have earned wins against Troy, Tusculum and Murray State.

ETSU went 20-3 overall, won the Southern Conference and punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament last season.
