OXFORD, Miss. - With five regular season matches left on the schedule, the No. 10 ranked Ole Miss men's tennis team aims to finish strong, and that begins Friday with a match at 13th-ranked arch-rival Mississippi State.

The two teams will square off for the third time this season at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre at 1 p.m.  After the Bulldogs claimed the River Hills Cup at the beginning of the season, the Rebels got revenge in Seattle at the National Team Indoor, winning 4-2.

"This year both teams have been ranked in the top 10 in the nation," head coach Billy Chadwick said.   "We are 1-1 against each other, and we're anticipating a great match."

Ole Miss (12-5, 5-3) is coming off a split of last weekend's matches.  After a tough 4-3 loss at LSU, the Rebels rebounded to top Arkansas 4-1.  

The Rebels continue to be led by All-Americans Nik Scholtz and Jonas Lutjen.  Scholtz is ranked No. 8 in the nation in the latest singles rankings with a 19-5 overall record, 11-3 at No. 1.    Lutjen is ranked No. 12 with a team-leading 25-9 overall record.   Scholtz and Lutjen form one of the top duos in the country in doubles at No. 4.   They are 14-2 at No. 1 doubles and 6-1 in the SEC.

Mississippi State comes into Friday's match at 13-6 overall, 3-4 in the SEC.  In their last match, the Bulldogs beat Arkansas 4-1. Their match at LSU was postponed due to weather.  The Bulldogs are led by freshman Romain Bogaerts, who is ranked No. 20 with a 10-5 record at No. 1 singles.
