    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (U of A) - University of Arkansas men's tennis coach Robert Cox released the spring schedule for the 2013 season Monday. This season is highlighted by 20 dual matches against teams that ended the 2012 season ranked including NCAA runner-up Virginia.

    "We are really excited for this spring season," Coach Cox said. "This may be the toughest complete schedule in recent memory. We have a deep and talented squad this year so we are definitely up for the challenge."

    Arkansas, which finished the 2012 season ranked 58th in the country, opens its season on January 20 when it travels to Omaha, Neb., to play a double header against Nebraska-Omaha and South Dakota State.

    The following weekend the Razorbacks will participate in the ITA Kickoff hosted by No. 2 Virginia. Arkansas will take the second seed in the Charlottesville, Va. bracket followed by Georgia State and North Florida.

    "The ITA Kickoff weekend will be a great test for us," Coach Cox said. "We are playing such a competitive non-conference schedule to hopefully prepare us for the intense play in the Southeastern Conference."

    The Hogs open their home season on Jan. 30 when they host No. 75 UAB at 5 p.m.

    The month of February consists of nine non-conference dual matches including a trip to Eugene, Ore., to play No. 74 Oregon and No. 61 New Mexico and a home match against rival No. 17 Tulsa.

    SEC play kicks off the beginning of March when the Razorbacks travel to No. 7 Kentucky and No. 48 Vanderbilt. Other SEC road matches include No. 12 Florida, No. 25 LSU, No. 30 Texas A&M and No. 41 South Carolina.

    Highlighted home conference matches include No. 5 Georgia, No. 11 Mississippi State, No. 14 Ole Miss, No. 19 Auburn, No. 20 Tennessee and No. 48 Alabama.

    The SEC has all 13 teams ranked in the top 58 in the country with eight being ranked in the top 25. Missouri does not have a men's tennis team.

    "The SEC could be called the premiere conference for colligate tennis," Coach Cox said. "With every team ranked, we know going into every conference match we will be facing some of the toughest competition in the country."

    SEC play comes to an end at the SEC Championships set for April 17-21 in Oxford, Miss. The NCAA Championships will follow beginning May 10 at campus sites to be determined before concluding May 16-26 at the Kahn Outdoor Tennis Complex in Urbana, Ill.
