No. 25 Texas won both doubles matches 6-2 and swept four singles matches in straight sets in a 5-0 victory over West Virginia on Saturday at UT’s Weller Indoor Tennis Center.

Texas (13-6) improved to 5-2 in Big 12 play and will play a conference match against Iowa State on Sunday. The Mountaineers (6-10) fell to 0-6 in the conference.

“I think our ladies adjusted well to the indoors. After the first hour or so, they actually started playing moderately well, so that’s good.” said coach Howard Joffe.
