The University of Oklahoma men’s tennis team returns to the court this weekend, following a week layoff, when it faces Minnesota and Wisconsin-Green Bay in Minneapolis, Minn.

“We have showed tremendous improvement over the last couple of weeks and I am pleased with the way we are competing,” head coach Paul Lockwood said.

Last Saturday, the Sooners defeated Old Dominion in Norfolk, Va., 5-2. Sunday OU came up on the short end against Virginia Commonwealth losing 5-2..

“Once again we play a couple of very strong teams and if we compete the way we are capable of competing we can pick up two victories,” Lockwood continued. “We are playing on the road for the second straight week which will pay off for our team in the long run.”

The Sooners are ranked No. 36 in the latest ITA tennis poll.

The Sooners return home Sunday, Feb. 17, as they host Arkansas at Willow Creek Golf and Country Club in Oklahoma City at 11 a.m.
