March 23, 2017

EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State men’s tennis team will take to the road for one match against No. 3 Ohio State. The Spartans will face their fourth ranked team of the season at 6 p.m. on Friday, March 24.

Michigan State currently sits at 10-8 on the year and 0-2 in Big Ten action. Ohio State is 16-3 and has yet to start conference play with Michigan State being its first contender.

“The Spartans are ready and eager to take on No. 3 Ohio State,” said head coach Gene Orlando. “They have been the team to beat the past decade and we look forward to the opportunity. Yes it will be a challenge but we are playing to win and if we extend matches long enough every team has a breaking point. Our goal is to get to that point and finish.”
