SWAC Tennis Members Plays Against LSU in Triple header

The Jackson State men’s tennis team and Alcorn State men’s tennis team will both take on a hot Louisiana State team on Saturday.

Jackson State is coming off of a 0-7 loss to both North Carolina State and Middle Tennessee State on Jan. 30. Alcorn State is coming off of a 3-0 loss to Mississippi State, putting up a good fight against the ranked Bulldogs but lost in straight sets.

Jackson State and Alcorn State both previously played against NC State in a triple header, winning all of their matches. But these two teams will face an uphill battle against the 4-1 Tigers of LSU.

The Tigers have beaten many of their opponents through sheer domination, having just lost only eight sets in doubles matches this season.

In addition, these two teams haven’t given LSU much of a fight in recent history as they both lost to LSU in the last two seasons.
