TULSA, Okla. - Head Coach Mark Milner is proud to release the 2014 Oral Roberts University spring men’s tennis schedule. The Golden Eagles will play 21 regular season matches during the upcoming season with an eye on their first berth in the Southland Conference Tournament.

Milner’s club opens the spring schedule on Saturday, January 18 against South Dakota State. ORU will host the match, one of 10 matches in the city of Tulsa, at Philcrest Hills Tennis Club.

A day later, the Golden Eagles will face their cross town rivals from the University of Tulsa, while Southland Conference play begins on Saturday, February 15, when the Golden Eagles travel to Monroe, La., for a meeting with Nicholls State.

ORU will take a two-day spring break trip beginning on Wednesday, March 19, when they face off with Murray State. One day later, ORU will wrap up the trip against Tennessee State in beautiful Nashville, Tenn.

The highlight of the schedule is a five-match home stand in Tulsa beginning on March 29 against Lamar and concluding on April 12 against Incarnate Word.

The home series will prepare the Golden Eagles for the 2014 Southland Conference Tournament, which begins on Saturday, April 26 in Corpus Christi, Texas. The top four teams in the SLC regular season standings will qualify for the event.

Milner’s club is led by five returning lettermen, including All-Southland candidate Fabian Zierleyn, who reached the Round of 16 at last week’s ITA Central Regional, and senior Parker Allen.
