DALLAS (SMU) - The well-rested SMU Mustangs men's tennis team will take on Arkansas-Fort Smith at the Samuell Grand Tennis Center on Saturday at 3 p.m.

The Mustangs are playing their first match since defeating Florida Gulf Coast 6-1 on Feb. 2. The squad has had plenty of time to prepare for Saturday and the rest of the upcoming matches, and head coach Carl Neufeld feels confident.

"We have had a great training block for the last couple weeks and we are excited to put what we have been working on in practice into our upcoming matches," Neufeld said.

SMU's top doubles pair of Arturs Kazijevs and Mischa Nowicki have had a strong spring, currently ranked No. 53 in the nation with a 2-2 record. One of those wins came against the No. 17-ranked Texas pair of Chris Camillone and David Holiner on Jan. 12.

Saturday's match will be followed by a match the subsequent Friday at TCU, and then a home match against Tulane on March 3.
