2013 NCAA Tournament Bracket
CHICAGO – The UIC women’s tennis team will face No. 15 Northwestern for the sixth time in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, as it was announced Tuesday evening during the NCAA Selection Show on NCAA.com. The Flames advanced to the tournament following their 17th-straight Horizon League Championship.
In its 15-consecutive NCAA appearances, UIC has squared off with the Wildcats one-third of those times. The Flames last faced the Wildcats during the 2008 first round, when Northwestern defeated UIC, 4-0.
The Flames are still searching for their first win in the NCAA Tournament, after falling last season to Michigan, 4-0. The winner of the match between UIC and No. 11 seed Northwestern will advance to the second round and take on the winner of San Diego State versus Baylor.
The first and second rounds are set for May 10-13 and will be held at the Christie Tennis Center, located at 2310 Sheridan Road, in Evanston, Ill. The Flames and Wildcats go head-to-head on Friday, May 10, beginning at 2 p.m. (CT).
