    UL Tennis Ragin' Cajuns Continue Homestand Facing Xavier On Saturday



    The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns men's tennis team continues its 10-match homestand on Saturday when it plays host to NAIA national runner-up Xavier (La.) in a pair of matches at Cajun Courts.

    Louisiana (5-2) opened its home schedule last week with a pair of wins over Jackson State (7-0, 6-1) and Alcorn State (4-0, 4-0). Freshman Jamie Fraser, who has won a team-high four dual matches this season, picked up a pair of straight-set victories last Saturday against Jackson State before picking up a 6-0, 6-1 victory on Sunday against Alcorn State.

    Men's Tennis used to play a great schedule. But, talk about padding your schedule.

    2 matches vs. Prairie View A&M
    UT Rio Valley State
    2 matches vs. Xavier
    2 matches vs. Jackson State
    2 matches vs. Alcorn State
    Florida A&M
    Texas A&M Corpus Christi
    Incarnate Word

    The above makes up half of our schedule. We only have 1 conference match vs. Georgia State.

    Really such outrage about a sport that's lucky to have fans in the stands. Two years ago I was the only non tennis connected fan in NOLA SBC tennis championships. While Marlin and the rest of the SBC coaches pad their collective non conference resume.

    I agree that those 5 are good programs, but that is only 5 out of 22 teams. Any idea why we only play GA State in conference plus the conference tournament? What other schools play tennis in the SBC and why don't we play them?
