The Longhorns open the dual-match season at home Wednesday against UTSA.

No. 17 Texas endured a rough 6-24 record this past weekend in Miami against three other top-ranked universities. Today, the team matches up against one of the two unranked opponents they will face during their non-conference schedule.

All-American sophomore Breaunna Addison was 1-1 in singles in Miami after she lost to a lower-ranked opponent. She will start the season as the leading Longhorn singles player.

Senior Elizabeth Begley enters her final semester with a chance at a third consecutive Big 12 Championship with Texas.

The dual-match style of play requires a school to be the first to accumulate four points. A team receives one point for each singles match won — there are six opportunities. Competing schools play a best two-out-of-three doubles match, in which the winner can receive one point.

Play will begin at 2 p.m.
