Feb. 7, 2014
EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan State women's tennis team will look to extend its winning streak to four matches as it hosts a doubleheader Saturday and concludes its seven-match home stand it had to start the season. MSU will take on Bowling Green at 10 a.m., and Oakland at 4 p.m. at the MSU Indoor Tennis Facility. Admission is free.
