CHARLOTTESVILLE -- The fifth-ranked Virginia men's tennis team continues its seven-match homestand this weekend as it hosts an ITA National Team Indoor Qualifier, part of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend. The Cavaliers will meet No. 45 Arkansas on Friday at 6 p.m., which follows a 2 p.m. match between No. 34 Wisconsin and No. 39 East Tennessee State. Friday's winners will meet at 6 p.m. on Saturday for a place in next month's ITA National Team Indoor Championship, while the losers will play in a consolation match at 2 p.m.
Virginia, the reigning ITA National Team Indoor Champion, has opened 2009 with a 4-0 record. Last week, the Cavaliers posted home victories over No. 15 Illinois (6-1), No. 30 Notre Dame (7-0) and Belmont (5-2) to extend their school-record home court winning streak to 34 matches. Arkansas will open the dual match season on Friday against the Cavaliers after having a pair of home matches postponed due to weather earlier this week. East Tennessee State is 0-1 on the year after falling 6-1 at No. 8 Tennessee last weekend and Wisconsin is 5-0 this season after a mid-week victory over Marquette.
Livestats for all four matches this weekend will be available at VirginiaSports.com.
