TULSA, Okla. - Yang Pang won two hard fought matches Friday to advance to the Round of 16 of the ITA Central Regional.  Sarah McLean started the day with a win over Minnesota's top player and the tournament 6th seed Natalia Pintusava, but suffered a three set loss in the 2nd round.

Pang defeated Iowa State's Simona Cacciuttolo 6-2, 6-4 in the opening round. In the second round the freshman rallied from a 4-6, 0-4 deficit to defeat Tulsa's Maria Sant'Anna 4-6, 6-4, 6-2.

"I am very pleased with some of the performances out here today, especially Nicky's comeback win," Coach Michael Hegarty said. "She showed true grit in overcoming a slow start and hopefully she can play even stronger tomorrow."
