Men's Tennis: UConn to host Bryant on Wednesday prior to busy stretch

The UConn men's tennis team will face Bryant University Wednesday, as they host the Bulldogs at the UConn Tennis Courts at 3:30 p.m.
The match will be contested in a modified format, with nine singles matches and four doubles matches being contested instead of the standard six-and-three format.
The Huskies look to rebound from a 1-5 defeat to Temple University this past Saturday, which snapped a three-meet win streak. The sole point in that match came in the doubles matches, which UConn lead 2-1.
"We need to continue the momentum in doubles, because we were very close, had a lot of close sets (against Temple)," UConn head coach Michael Louis said.
Bryant, 10-10, is also coming off of a loss, getting swept by Yale 7-0 this past Sunday. The Bulldogs have been less consistent in recent meets, winning only one of their last six. The Huskies, after a 3-0 run during Spring Break, have been even at 3-3 in their last six matches.
"We're trying to take it each match at a time, it's a long season," Louis said. "We're not thinking ahead to the season yet, we're just trying to win our next match."
UConn has five matches coming up in the next 10 days, closing out the season with a busy schedule. Louis said the more seasoned players on the team, however, are used to the grind of a season that begins in the fall and play through to the spring.
The first step to finishing strongly will be to get themselves closer to a winning season by beating Bryant.
"I don't think there's any mental fatigue, or anything like that. We want to finish playing well and doing the right things," Louis said.
