The Tigers finish 2-1 in the Weekend of AAC Tennis Action

MEMPHIS, Tenn. – The 37th ranked Memphis Tiger men’s tennis team competed in Dallas this weekend, winning 2-1 in a trio of American Athletic Conference matches.

The Tigers (12-5) defeated both Wichita State and Temple by 4-2 goals before falling to No. 31 SMU, 4-0.

“It was a great weekend with very competitive conference matches,” Memphis head coach said Paul Goebel said. “Our guys competed well and look good over the course of the season at home.”
