The Hurricane's only loss to the Braves was a 3-1 setback during the 1992 campaign. The last time the school's squared off was during the 1995 season in Tulsa. TU blanked Bradley, 3-0, in that game.
The Tulsa Golden Hurricane women's team (8-5-1, 3-2 WAC) hosts the Hawai`i Rainbow Wahine (4-9-1, 1-2-1 WAC) in Western Athletic Conference play. Sunday's game is the final WAC home game of the season for Tulsa. The Hurricane has won two straight games coming into the Hawaii contest, including a 3-0 shutout victory over Nevada this past Friday.
Hawai`i fell to UTEP, 1-0, last Friday in El Paso. The Wahine leads the series with the Golden Hurricane, 1-0, after capturing a 1-0 decision last season in Honolulu.
