UTC is 0-1 on the year after dropping last week’s season opener at Middle Tennessee 7-0. The Mocs are working three new faces into a lineup that also includes four returners from last year’s squad. UTC lost seven seniors off of the 2013 team that went 12-9 overall and 6-4 in Southern Conference action.
The Mocs are coming off back-to-back winning seasons for the first time since 2007 and 2008 and the first winning record in league play since 2007.
Tennessee Tech is the two-time defending Ohio Valley Conference regular season champions. The Eagles are 0-1 on the year after a 7-0 loss at No. 6 Tennessee on Saturday.
Chattanooga is 16-9 all-time against the Eagles, including a tough 4-3 win at the Hixson Racquet Club on Jan. 20 last season. TTU is also replacing its top players from a year ago, and only five of the 12 combined singles competitors from last year’s meeting are in the probable lineup for Saturday.
