The Youngstown State men's tennis team plays three home matches in a two-day span starting on Friday afternoon at the Boardman Tennis Center. The Penguins play Niagara and Carnegie Mellon on Friday and Bucknell on Saturday.

On Friday, the Guins are set to take on Niagara at 12:30 p.m. and Carnegie Mellon at 7 p.m. On Saturday, YSU is in action against Bucknell at 5 p.m.

The Penguins will be playing at home for just the second time this year. After Saturday's contest, YSU will not have another home contest until mid-March.

So far this spring, three Penguins own a 3-3 dual record. Matthew Kritzinger, Joao Garretto and Vasilis Vardakis each have three victories to lead the team.

YSU has won the last three contests with the Purple Eagles and is 2-0 all-time vs. CMU. Against Bucknell the Penguins are winless in three duals with the last contest coming on Feb. 21, 2016 at the Boardman Tennis Center.
