The Longhorns head back on the road to North Carolina on Sunday to take on Duke.
Duke boasts a 6-1 record this season, with the lone loss coming against No. 1 Vanderbilt. The Blue Devils are looking to defeat the Longhorns to maintain momentum in their last match before ACC play begins. Meanwhile, the Longhorns (3-2) are looking to bounce back from a loss on the road to Rice last Saturday.
Two-time All American senior Breaunna Addison is now the sole ranked player for Texas, while a young Duke team includes three ranked players — No. 21 freshman Kaitlyn McCarthy, No. 68 freshman Ellyse Hamlin and No. 24 senior Beatrice Capra.
Duke moved up to No. 7 in ITA rankings after beating then-No. 9 Texas A&M on Feb. 7 — its first win against a top-10 team this season. No. 40 Texas team will need to come out strong to slow the Blue Devils’ momentum.
Play begins at 11 a.m. Sunday in Durham, North Carolina.
