COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.-- Boise State women's tennis drew the No. 10 seed in this week's Mountain West Championship and will face No. 7 Nevada in the opening round Wednesday at 3 p.m. (MT), in Albuquerque, N.M. The Broncos (9-12, 2-4 MW) have not faced the Wolf Pack (8-10, 1-4 MW) since suffering a 4-2 loss in the quarterfinals of the 2013 MW Championship.

Seeding for the tournament is based on the upcoming ITA Rankings which will be released publicly Tuesday, but were made available to conferences for tournament seeding purposes.

Live video of each match of the tournament will be streamed on the Mountain West Network. Live scoring will also be available. The tournament will take place at the McKinnon Family Tennis Center on the campus of New Mexico. The host Lobos are seeded second and await the winner of Boise State and Nevada.

The Broncos finished the regular season with a 9-12 record, including a 2-4 mark in MW action. Boise State picked up wins against No. 8 seed Air Force and No. 9 seed Colorado State. The losses came at the hands of top-seeded Fresno State, No. 2 New Mexico, No. 5 Wyoming and No. 6 Utah State. The Broncos fell to the Cowgirls and Aggies by 4-3 scores.

Boise State is 0-2 all-time at the MW Championship. The Broncos were eliminated in the quarterfinals each of the previous two seasons. Boise State has won six conference tournament titles and claimed seven runner-up finishes. The last championship came in 2010 in the Western Athletic Conference.
