OXFORD, Miss. -- The No. 10 nationally ranked Ole Miss men's tennis team will host the No. 32 nationally ranked Memphis Tigers this Wednesday in their first outdoor match of the season at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.
All fans entering Wednesday's match at 2 p.m. will receive a collector poster of senior Adrian Forberg Skogeng. Fans will also have a chance to win an iPod shuffle.
"We are looking forward to our first outdoor match of the spring," head coach Billy Chadwick said. "I am very impressed with Memphis' team. They return everyone from a team last year that beat the University of Tennessee. With the addition of a top recruit that joined their team in January, they have perhaps their best team in the history of their program. They guys on the team know that we will need to be at our best."
Memphis, who made the NCAAs last year, comes into the match 3-3 after a tough loss to Vanderbilt. The Tigers have one player in the ITA rankings. Junior Joe Salisbury is ranked No. 73.
The Rebels are coming off a top 10 finish at the ITA National Team Indoor with wins against then No.14 Tennessee and then No. 10 Mississippi State.
Ole Miss (5-2) currently has four players ranked in the ITA rankings. Senior Jonas Lutjen is ranked No. 6, sophomore Nik Sholtz is ranked No. 24 and was named SEC Player of the Week last week. Sophomore William Kallberg is ranked No. 40 and freshman Stefan Lindmark is ranked No. 84. In doubles, the Rebels boast two teams in the top 25.
