The Kentucky men's tennis team, one of the best kept secrets in the UK athletics program right now, is getting ready to host the Southeastern Conference Tournament this weekend at the Hilary J. Boone Tennis Complex.
The No. 12 Cats, winners of their last 12 of 13 matches, enter the tournament as one of the hottest teams in the nation. UK has won seven straight matches and six matches during the season against top-16 opponents.
Sophomore Eric Quigley, ranked the 13th-best individual player in the nation, hasn't lost a match in April (9-0) and will lead Kentucky against one of the toughest fields in all of college tennis.
The tournament kicks off Thursday but the fourth-seeded Cats have earned a first-round bye and will not play until Friday at 3 p.m. against the winner of No. 5 seed Ole Miss and No. 12 seed South Carolina.
Head coach Dennis Emery talks about his team entering the tournament in the above video. For more details, check out the full release on the home page.
