Baton Rouge—The LSU men’s tennis team returns home to the LSU Tennis Complex to take on the No. 11 Florida Gators on Friday, February 26, at 5:00 p.m.

LSU split last week’s SEC opening weekend, defeating Vanderbilt on Friday, 5-2, but falling to No. 16 Kentucky on Sunday, 4-0.

The Gators are coming off a hot start to SEC play, defeating both Alabama and Auburn, 6-1.

The Tigers have a tough task ahead of them as the Gators have five players ranked in singles: No. 8 Sam Riffice, No. 12 Duarte Vale, No. 68 Blaise Bicknell, No. 85 Andy Andrade, and No. 96 Lukas Greif.
