STARTING SERVE: The Tennessee State men’s tennis team has a stacked weekend with a doubleheader on Saturday, Feb. 10 at 9 a.m. against the Vanderbilt Commodores, followed by a Sunday match against fellow HBCU Alabama State at 11 a.m. Both matches will take place at the Currey Tennis Center.

LAST TIME OUT: The Tigers trekked to Memphis, Tenn. for the second time this spring for a match against the LeMoyne-Owen Magicians at the Whitehaven Tennis Center, Wednesday, Feb. 7. Big Blue came out unscathed as the Tigers won 9-0 in the pro set. With a new pairing at No. 1, sophomore Tanishq Mahendru and Georgia native Larry Sloan rolled through the Magicians, 8-1, followed by a Pavle Popovic and Stefan Koruga shutout. Every Tiger pulled out a win in singles play, leading to the Tiger’s fifth shutout of the spring season.

SCOUTING VANDERBILT: After falling to No. 17 Columbia last weekend, the Commodores are 4-2 on the season – both losses from ranked teams. Middle Tennessee, to whom we lost 7-0, put up a good fight against the Dores before falling 4-3.

SCOUTING ALABAMA STATE: The Hornets (0-6) will be loking for its first win of the season. The men are coming off of a 6-1 loss to Southern Mississippi where sophomore Ion Efrim of Romania was the lone victory at No. 1 for ASU. In the last meet up with TSU, the Hornets walked away with a 5-2 victory.

UP NEXT: The men's team will host MVSU for a doubleheader Friday, Feb. 16 at 2 p.m. and again at 5 p.m.
