STARTING SERVE: Tennessee State Tennis will begin its final homestand Thursday afternoon at the Currey Tennis Complex. The women will kick off the three-match weekend against UT Martin at 3 p.m. 

LAST TIME OUT: The men's tennis team took a tumble at Alabama A&M early this week, as they dropped the match 4-3. After the Tigers corraled for the doubles point victory, the Bulldogs put the pressure on winning three singles matches in straight sets and the final in a close tiebreaker. The women's team split its weekend, defeating SIUE 4-3, followed by a sweep at EIU. 

SCOUTING UT MARTIN: The Skyhawks sit near the bottom of the conference with only one win at Belmont. Junior Jemima Potter leads UTM with a 4-7 dual singles record, while Andrea Plantada has served up a .500 individual doubles record. Last season, the Skyhawks who ended spring 12-5, swept the Tigers 7-0. With a record of 1-12, it looks as though the Tigers have a chance to top UT Martin this Thursday. 

SCOUTING EKU: Eastern Kentucky's men's team are even-keeled as the team has three conference matches remaining, and a healthy 1-2 OVC record entering the weekend. Ramon van Flymen plays at No. 1 and is 10-8 on the season. However, the senior has struggled in doubles, accumulating a 4-8 record at No. 1. 

Undefeated in the Ohio Valley Conference, the Colonels women's team is visiting Nashville with a 10-8 record, 4-5 away from home. Two Colonels, Laura Argente and Alexandra Belle, are tied for the top spot with 11-6 singles records. EKU has yet to lose a match if it wins the doubles point, similar to last season when the Tigers lost 7-0 in Martin, Tenn. 

SCOUTING BETHEL-TN: The Wildcats will have its third road match at TSU. Bethel-TN is 0-2 in matches away from home, with its last being Cumberland. The Phoenix dominated Bethel-TN 9-0, giving the Tigers, who beat Cumberland 5-2 a favorable outlook against the NAIA team. 

UP NEXT: The Tigers will end its regular season with visits from crosstown-rival Belmont, Tennessee Tech and Jacksonville State the weekend of April 12-14.
