The Bucs will look to win their first tournament match since 2010 against Michigan

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (May 3, 2016) – The 54th-ranked ETSU men's tennis team (18-5, 7-0 SoCon) has drawn Michigan in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Bucs, who have won 15 consecutive matches dating back to early March, and Wolverines will face off on May 13 in Winston Salem, N.C.

“We are happy with the selection,” said ETSU Head Coach Yaser Zaatini. “The only thing we can control is preparing our guys and having them ready to go.”

The matchup against Michigan will mark the 14th trip to the NCAA Tournament for the Bucs in the 18 years since the NCAA Tournament adopted the team tournament format in 1999. ETSU has won two tournament matches in its history with the first coming against Alabama (2010) and the second against Notre Dame (2008).
