No. 42 Patrick Kawka and sophomore Francis Sargeant share a team-high 12 regular-season wins in singles play. The pair also competes in doubles competition together and has earned an 11-3 mark on the year.

The doubles duo of Keaton Cullimore and John Pearce has earned 11 wins this season too, with most of their playing time coming at the No. 3 doubles position.

New Mexico comes to Provo on a three-match win streak. The Lobos most recently notched a victory over in-state opponent New Mexico State last week at home.
