Jordan Chapman, Hurricane's No. 2 singles player, has an 8-1 record on the season and could make a deep run in the conference tournament.
Vivien Yao, Hurricane's No. 2 singles player on the girls side, might've been the favorite to take home the MSAC title for the Redskins, but she won't participate today.
Yao has been accepted to Princeton University and is in New Jersey on an academic trip.
Payton Berardi will take Yao's place at the No. 2 position for the tournament.
Lindsay Goff, Hurricane's No. 3 singles player, could make a finals appearance.
"The girls No. 2 through No. 4 singles is wide open," Luckett said. "It is the most competitive I have seen in a long time."

Capital will be close to home for the tournament.
The Cougars have a pair of sophomores with tennis in their blood.
Olivia Boughton, Capital's No. 2 singles player, and her twin brother Parker will have the opportunity to compete against the state's best in their own backyard.
Parker Boughton is the No. 1 singles player for the boys.
Andre Cunningham, Capital's No. 2 singles player, is the lone senior and provides experience to the Cougars' youthful squad.
