Men's Tennis Travels to Face Rival Tulane

NEW ORLEANS – The LSU men’s tennis team will travel to Tulane on Wednesday afternoon for its final nonconference match of the season at 3 p.m. at the City Park Pepsi Tennis Center.

“This is a big match for us to gain some momentum for a final push toward the SEC and NCAA tournaments,” said LSU head coach Jeff Brown.

LSU trails Tulane 28-45-2 in the match series, which includes a 7-0 win in favor of the Tigers in 2013 at Dub Robinson Stadium.

In the doubles rankings for LSU, junior Chris Simpson and sophomore Boris Arias are No. 33 and sophomore Tam Trinh and redshirt freshman Eric Perez are No. 63. Simpson is No. 81 in singles.

LSU (11-12, 2-9 SEC) is coming off of a tough stretch after competing against its third consecutive top 20 team, No. 8 Georgia, and falling 4-0. The Green Wave (13-6, 3-2 C-USA) has not played since March 30 against UTSA, which ended in the Green Wave favor with a 5-2 win.
