CHARLESTON, S.C. - The College of Charleston men's tennis team will close out its regular-season home slate with two Southern Conference rivals beginning with Furman on Friday, April 6 at 2:30 p.m. (ET) at the CofC Tennis Center at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

The Cougars (11-3, 5-0 SoCon) will look to continue their four-match win streak after coming off a 4-3 road decision at UNCG on April 1. Meanwhile, the Paladins (8-12, 5-2 SoCon) are also on a four-match win streak which includes a 6-1 home victory over The Citadel on April 3.

"This will be the first time in three years our team will face-off against the Paladins in Charleston," CofC Head Coach Jay Bruner said. "We are looking forward to a good test against a young Furman team that has had a couple of good wins this season. This is a match that could be a possible preview of the semifinals of this year's SoCon Tournament."

Three days later, CofC will honor seniors Mickael Trintignac (Le Cannet, France), Tom Delme (Hamoir, Belgium) and Chris Toussaint (Charlotte, N.C.) versus Georgia Southern (1-18, 0-8 SoCon) in its regular-season home finale slated for Monday, April 9 at 2:30 p.m. (ET).

A pay-per-view live video stream of the doubles point against GSU will be available on the Charleston Sports Network at: www.CofCSports.com. The Cougars are currently 6-1 on the season at home and are the only remaining unbeaten team in the league.
