HOUSTON--- Sixteen home matches, eight contests against ranked opponents from last season, and five matchups vs. NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago highlight what will arguably be Houston's toughest spring schedule in recent memory, as announced by head women's tennis coach Patrick Sullivan on Tuesday.

"This is definitely the most difficult schedule this program has seen in a long time, but we feel that we're up to the task," said Sullivan. "Starting early in the season we have a stretch of seven or eight matches in a row against teams that should all make the NCAA tournament this season, which is certainly a big challenge for a program that hasn't made the tournament since our current freshmen were toddlers.

"At the same time, we're hungry and have worked very hard this fall. If our team can stay motivated and keep working hard through the winter break, good things will happen for us in the spring."

The Cougars will play the most home matches in program history, as Houston opens up the regular season with six consecutive home contests, welcoming in New Mexico (Jan. 26), Southern Miss (Jan. 31), Texas A&M-Corpus Christi (Feb. 2), North Texas (Feb. 8), Kansas (Feb. 14), and Mississippi State (Feb. 16).

Houston will then begin a stretch where three of the next four contests will come against three ranked opponents from 2013, at No. 46 Washington on Feb. 23, at No. 17 Texas on Feb. 28 (NCAA Tournament second round participant), and vs. No. 29 Tulsa on March 1 (NCAA first round participant).

With the Tulsa match begins a five-game homestand for the Cougars, in what will be the second-longest home stretch of the season, which concludes with a March 9 contest vs. 2012 NCAA Tournament participant North Florida before the team makes a trip to Salt Lake City to take on the University of Utah, which ended last season ranked No. 58 in the country.

The Cougars will round out the season playing five of their final nine matches at home, including three against 2012 ranked squads in intrastate rival No. 51 SMU (March 22), No. 68 Harvard (March 30), and at No. 44 William and Mary (April 11).

The inaugural American Athletic Conference championship tournament will take place April 17- 20th.

Houston will also compete in the preseason Hurricane Invite tournament, hosted by the University of Tulsa on Jan. 10-12th. Texas, Old Dominion, Wyoming, and host Tulsa will join the Cougars in the event.
