BLOOMINGTON, Ill. - The Illinois State men's tennis team (0-2), plays host to Belmont (0-1), Saturday, Jan. 25, at 2:30 p.m., at the Evergreen Racquet Club. The Redbirds host a home match for the first time in the 2013-14 season and look to improve on last year's home record of 2-3.

The squad of eight will look to Rodrigo Oliveira for leadership, following his victory last weekend over No. 25 Tulsa's, Juan Carvajal. In doubles action, new addition Urh Kranjc Domiter, also sparked some great play.

Head-coach Mark Klysner knows his team will be tested this Saturday.

"I'm looking forward to playing a good Belmont team. They had a good result against Vanderbilt, so we're going to have play very well to come out with a win," Klysner said.

ISU opened the spring season Jan. 19, with losses to SMU and No. 25 Tulsa.
