BUFFALO -- The University at Buffalo women's tennis team will head to Columbus, OH for the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament as the Bulls will face the third-seeded Ohio State Buckeyes in the first round, the NCAA announced on Tuesday during the NCAA Women's Tennis Selection Show.  The Bulls and Buckeyes will square off on Saturday, May 13 at 12:00pm.

The Bulls enter the NCAA Tournament as the Mid-American Conference Champions following their 4-2 victory over Miami (OH) on Sunday afternoon in the conference finals.  The Bulls are 14-8 and currently riding an eight-match winning streak.  UB has not lost a match since April 7.

Ohio State is 28-2 as the Buckeyes went a perfect 11-0 in the Big Ten, winning the tournament title with a 4-0 victory over Michigan.  These two teams have never met before.

Also in the Columbus Regional is Notre Dame and Kansas, who will play after Buffalo and Ohio State on Saturday.  The winners will then play on Sunday at Noon with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line.

The women's tennis team becomes the fourth different UB team to play an NCAA Tournament game in Columbus, OH as the men's basketball and men's tennis teams were both there in 2015 and the women's basketball team was there in 2016.

All-session tickets, which include all six matches (three women's and three men's) are $21 for adults and $12 for youth/students. Single day tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for youth/students on May 12 and May 14 and $12 for adults and $8 for youth/students May 14 when three matches are on the slate.
