MURFREESBORO, Tenn. - The Sun Belt Conference men's tennis championships will begin on Friday, April 18 in Monroe, La., with the Blue Raiders seeded third.

Middle Tennessee is 8-14 overall but has a 2-1 conference record with wins over No. 66 Denver, No. 61 South Alabama and Arkansas-Little Rock. The win over South Alabama was in a tournament so it does not count as a conference match but was against a conference opponent.

The Blue Raiders will face Louisiana-Lafayette, who is seeded sixth in the tournament at 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

With a win Middle Tennessee will advance to the semi-finals on Saturday, April 19 at 5 p.m. when it would play the loser of second seeded South Alabama and Troy, who is the seventh seed.

The complete bracket and information on the Blue Raiders performance in the conference tournament will be posted throughout the weekend on www.goblueraiders.com.
