Razorbacks Men's Tennis Back out on the Road This Weekend

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - The University of Arkansas men's tennis team (11-10, 1-4) heads off on their second SEC road trip this weekend, facing Ole Miss on Friday and No. 22 Mississippi State on Sunday.

The Razorbacks are coming off a 2-1 performance last weekend, with perfect 5-0 doubleheader wins over Nebraska-Omaha on Friday evening. The team dropped a 4-0 decision to No. 12 Texas A&M earlier in the day and moved to 11-10 on the season.

Freshman Johan den Toom, two-time SEC Freshman of the Week, extended his win streak to four matches, including a 3-1 start to SEC play. Den Toom is on his second win streak of the season and has recorded ten victories at the No. 5 position this spring, which is a team- and career-high for the newcomer.

No. 59 ranked senior doubles pair of Hall Fess and Pete Thomason notched their 14th victory of the Spring last weekend and are off to a 3-2 start in SEC play, a career high for both teammates. They lead Razorback doubles pairs in victories at the No. 2 position. Seniors Manfred Jeske and Mike Nott, the No. 79 pair, exited last weekend with a win at the No. 1 position.

Ole Miss enters the weekend at 4-8 on the season and 2-4 in SEC play, sitting one above Arkansas in conference rankings. The Rebels are on a two-match losing streak and are just 1-5 on their home court this spring.

No. 22 Mississippi State stands at 3-3 in conference play but 13-7 across the spring, holding an impressive 8-0 record at home.

The Razorbacks will take on the Ole Miss Rebels at 2 p.m. on Friday and the No. 22 Mississippi State Bulldogs Sunday at 1 p.m. Live stats links for both can be found here as well as by following @RazorbackMTEN on Twitter.
