Junior Aswin Lizen (Douglas, Isle of Man) improved to 4-0 in the spring and 16-1 overall with a pair of victories last weekend, including topping Tim Sandkaulen of Ole Miss who is ranked No. 14 in the ITA singles rankings.

The Colonels will take on JMU in the morning followed by Virginia Tech in the afternoon. EKU opened the season with back-to-back 7-0 losses to Purdue and Kentucky before sweeping a doubleheader last Saturday against University of the Cumberlands and Northern Kentucky. Ramon van Flymen leads the Colonels with an 11-7 record, including a 3-2 mark at No. 1.
Kentucky dropped its ITA Kickoff Weekend opening round match, 4-2, to host Oklahoma State, but rebounded with a 4-1 victory over Wisconsin in the consolation final. The Wildcats swept a doubleheader on opening day against Northern Kentucky and EKU, but fell 4-3 at Notre Dame on January 21.
