BATON ROUGE – The No. 20 LSU women’s tennis team will host Alcorn St. in its second doubleheader of the season at the LSU Tennis Complex Wednesday.

The first match will begin at 3:30 p.m. followed by the second match after a brief warm-up period. 

LSU has played Alcorn St. just once in program history, a 7-0 victory over the Lady Braves in 2015.

The Tigers (3-1) split their two matches against Washington and Fresno St. at ITA Kick-Off Weekend at Duke University and will now embark on an eight-match home stand to round out non-conference play and begin SEC play in March.

Senior No. 73 Ryann Foster and No. 66 Jessica Golovin are currently undefeated on courts two and four, respectively, and Golovin is in the midst of a six-match win streak dating back to the fall.

Alcorn St. (0-1) is coached by Anthony Dodgen in his 21st season as head coach of both the men’s and women’s tennis teams.

For more information on the LSU women’s tennis program follow the Tigers on Twitter @lsuwten and @LSUJuliaSell, on Instagram @LSUWTen and on www.Facebook.com/lsuwten.
