    The men’s tennis team will attempt to set two season milestones when it faces three Mountain West opponents over the next three days in Provo, Utah.

    TCU (16-5, 3-0) is undefeated and ranked No. 31 in the Mountain West and tied for first place with its 3-0 record. If the Horned Frogs sweep their regular season conference-ending series against the University of Utah, San Diego State and the University of New Mexico, they will have finished as undefeated regular-season conference champions.

    The Utes (12-11, 2-4) are first up for the Horned Frogs today. Last season, in TCU’s conference-opening game, the Horned Frogs beat the Utes 5-2.

    Junior Kriegler Brink fell to junior Ute Wes Hancock 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 and senior Ute Othman Zerouali-Quariti defeated TCU’s Andrew Ulrich 6-1, 4-6, 6-1.

    San Diego State University was one of two conference teams the Horned Frogs lost to last season. The Aztecs dropped the Horned Frogs 4-3, in TCU’s first conference loss of the 2007 season.

    SDSU (12-8, 1-2 MWC) is next up for the Horned Frogs. The Aztecs are losers of their last two games, falling to Utah and New Mexico, both by a score of 5-2.

    TCU closes out its three-day series against New Mexico (16-6, 3-0), which is tied with the Horned Frogs for the conference lead. TCU took the contest last year 4-2.

    Both teams have three conference games over the next three days, which will finish their regular-conference seasons.

    New Mexico, in addition to TCU, will face the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Brigham Young University.

    TCU beat UNLV earlier in the season 5-2 and BYU 6-1.

    Following its three-game series, the TCU tennis team will face crosstown rival SMU before the MWC championships.

    Last year it fell in the semifinals of the championship 4-0 to UNLV.
