Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Tennessee State University's men's and women's tennis teams continue a three-match homestand with contests against Eastern Kentucky on Wednesday and Western Kentucky on Thursday afternoon at the TSU Tennis Complex.

Tuesday's Ohio Valley Conference match is scheduled for a 2 p.m. first serve, while Thursday's non-conference tilt is tabled for 3 p.m.

The netters dropped a season opener to Morehead State, as the men (0-1, 0-1 OVC) fell 5-0 and the women (0-1, 1-0 OVC) 4-0 to the Eagles.

Eastern Kentucky's men enter Tuesday's match with an 11-6 record (1-0 OVC), but fell last weekend to No. 7 Virginia, 7-0. Before that, EKU had won four straight including a 4-3 decision over Jacksonville State.

The Colonels women (8-5, 1-0 OVC) have dropped four of their last seven decisions. On March 11, EKU snagged a 7-0 shutout at Jacksonville State.

The Western Kentucky men are 4-6 this season victories in four out of their last five contests. The Hilltoppers knocked off Alabama A&M 6-1 on March 9 and return to the court for the first time in nearly two weeks.

WKU's women are off to a 7-3 record with wins in seven out of the last eight matches. WKU has won three straight with victories over North Alabama, Alabama-Huntsville and Alabama A&M.

After the conclusion of Thursday's match, the Tigers hit the road for a pair of matches at SIUE and Eastern Illinois. Results of this week's midweek matchups will be posted online at TSUTigers.com.
