OXFORD, Miss. – There is no place like home, and after four consecutive road matches, the Ole Miss men’s tennis team kicks off a huge homestand beginning with No. 4 Southern California Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center.
Fans coming to Wednesday’s match will enjoy free chicken tenders between doubles and singles and one lucky fan will win an Oby’s gift card for correctly guessing the end time of doubles.
“We are very excited to welcome one of the top programs in collegiate tennis to our campus,” head coach Billy Chadwick said. “We have beaten two top 25 teams on the road, and I am seeing improvement with each match. We are looking forward to this homestand and would like to encourage all our fans to come out and watch great tennis.”
Ole Miss is coming off consecutive road trips in SEC play, where they picked up wins over then No. 13 Tennessee and No. 23 Vanderbilt.
The Rebels are led by Nik Scholtz, who is ranked No. 44 in singles, but likely to move up after a huge win over No. 10 ranked Tom Jomby at Kentucky on Sunday. Scholtz handed the Wildcat just his second loss of the season.
Southern Cal — winners of four consecutive NCAA Championships from 2009-2012 and the nation’s leader with 20 total titles — owns a 15-2 overall record. The Trojans are led by No. 4 ranked Ray Sarmiento and No. 11 ranked Yannick Hanfmann. The duo also form the No. 8 ranked doubles team in the nation.
The Rebels and Trojans have met five times previously, including a 4-3 win for the Rebels on their way to the 1995 NCAA Championship final.
