IU Hosts Two Doubleheaders This Weekend
Jan. 30, 2013
Indiana men's tennis (1-4) returns home to host a pair of doubleheaders this weekend at the IU Indoor Tennis Center. On Friday, the 23rd-ranked Hoosiers host No. 8 Oklahoma (3-0) at 2 p.m. ET, before the Jaguars of IUPUI (0-6) lineup across the net at 7 p.m. Sunday sees IU take on No. 49 Dartmouth (0-2) at 10 a.m., and Ball State (3-2) at 3:30 p.m. You can stay up to date with the matches at IUHoosiers.com and by following @IUMTennis on Twitter.
Oklahoma comes to town fresh off a win in the ITA Kick-Off event they hosted. The Sooners have wins over Wichita State, Memphis and Harvard in three matches this season and have yet to surrender a point to opposing teams. Three Sooners are nationally-ranked in singles, highlighted by No. 36 Guillermo Alcorta. IU has played Oklahoma the past two seasons, losing in Norman last year after falling 4-3 to the Sooners in Bloomington in 2011.
IUPUI enters with an 0-6 record on the season, including a 7-0 loss to Purdue. The Hoosiers swept the Jaguars on March 25 last season.
Dartmouth started the season at home, hosting the Clemson Tigers and Purdue, falling in both matches. The Big Green fell 0-4 to Clemson and 3-4 to Purdue. They square off with Old Dominion at home on Friday before heading to Bloomington.
Ball State comes in the winners of three straight after starting the season with losses at Northwestern and against Illinois. The Cardinals took the Illini the distance, falling 4-3. Since that match, BSU has won 7-0 over Detroit Mercy, Eastern Illinois and Dayton, all in Muncie. The Cardinals are led by Bloomington's own Ray Leonard, a 2012 first team All-MAC honoree as a freshman.
