After dropping their first Big East conference match against Georgetown last Friday, UConn men’s tennis team will look to end their three-match slide today when they take on the Quinnipiac Bobcats at 2 p.m.
Due to the cold weather, the match will again be held indoors at the East Hartford Tennis Club, as well as rest of the home matches until spring break, according to Head Coach Glenn Marshall.
Despite the fact that the Huskies are coming off three consecutive 7-0 losses in their latest matches, the team isn’t rattled.
“We played some great teams the past three matches, and the matches have been closer than the score indicates,” freshman Mark HoSang said. “Everybody is confident going into Quinnipiac and we are looking forward to the match.”
As for the Bobcats, they are heading into Friday’s contest in a very similar fashion as the Huskies. The team is staggering after three successive 7-0 losses as well, and pose the identical record of 1-3. Nevertheless, UConn looks to remain focused on the upcoming task.
“They are a great in-state rival that we’ve played for years and years, and always have had good matches with them,” Marshall said. “We got them last year, and kind of go back and forth over the years. We see them in the fall at tournaments all the time so we know their players really well. It’s going to be a good, competitive match. I look forward to it.”
