Tulsa Battles Oklahoma State, Plays Final Match at Harwell Courts against Kansas:
After inclement weather postponed last week's match, the Hurricane invades Stillwater this Tuesday (4/17) to battle the OSU Cowboys. The match will begin at 2:00 p.m. at the DeBois Tennis Center. A year ago in Tulsa, the Cowboys slipped by the Hurricane, 4-3. Tuesday's TU-OSU matchup marks the 35th meeting between the two schools.
On Sunday, April 22, an era in the Tulsa men's tennis program comes to a close as the Hurricane plays its final regular season home match ever at the Harwell Tennis Courts against Kansas. Next year, Tulsa moves into the new Michael D. Case Center. The match, which begins at 10:00 a.m. will not only mark the last match at the Harwell Tennis Courts, but it will also serve as the final meeting between the Hurricane and Jayhawks. Earlier this season, the University of Kansas announced that the KU men's tennis program would be dropped at the conclusion of the 2000-01 campaign.
Tulsa's Sebastyanski Upsets Nation's Fourth-Ranked Singles Player:
Against the second-ranked Horned Frogs, a 5-2 TU loss, Sebastyanski pulled off one of the greatest upsets in the history of the TU men's tennis program. At the No. 1 singles position, Sebastyanski squared off against TCU's Esteban Carril, the nation's fourth-ranked singles player. Sebastyanski battled toe-to-toe with Carril and stung the Horned Frogs' top singles player in straight sets, 7-5, 7-5. The loss snapped Carril's 12-match win streak.
Monk Picks UP WAC Honors for the Second Time this Season:
Monk led the Hurricane to a perfect 2-0 record two weeks ago with home wins over Oral Roberts and Boise State. For the week, he knotted two singles wins to aid Tulsa's cause. He needs six wins to break into the school's top-10 chart for career singles victories. His 23 wins to date are a single-season career best and the most by a TU player this season. In less than three seasons of play, he boasts a career singles mark of 46-32 and needs three more singles victories this season to move into a four-way tie for eighth-place among the school's single-season leaders.
