Men’s Tennis Hosts In-State Showdown Versus Tulane

Baton Rouge, La.—The LSU men’s tennis team comes back home to host the Tulane Green Wave this Friday at 4:00 p.m. at the LSU Tennis Complex.

The Tigers are coming off a weekend in Tuscaloosa, Ala., where they took on Virginia Tech and Dartmouth. LSU came out on top over the Hokies, 4-3, but suffered their first loss of the season two days later against the Big Green. This is the third consecutive year that LSU has started with a 5-1 record.

LSU and Tulane will face off for the 80th time in program history, with LSU trying to chip away at the 31-47-2 series record. Their last meeting last season resulted in an LSU victory over a then ranked No. 17 Tulane, 4-3.

This also marks the first time that both LSU men’s and women’s tennis teams will play simultaneously. The men will be on the back courts while the women’s side will be on the front courts.  

Admission to all matches in the LSU Tennis Complex is free. Fans can follow the match at www.LSUstats.com and on Twitter @LSUTennis. The matches can also be streamed online at LSUsports.net.
