Scouting the Terriers - This will be the second consecutive home match for St. Francis Brooklyn. Saint Peter's and St. Francis Brooklyn played together at the Hofstra Invitational this season. Last season, the Peacocks fell in a tightly contested match, 4-3, in Jersey City. Ivan Knezevic, Gabriel Russotto, and graduate Cuong Lam were the Peacocks' winners. The last time the Peacocks defeated the Terriers were on March 6, 2016 by the way of a sweep.

 

Scouting the Explorers - La Salle is looking for their first dual match win of the season. Last season, the Peacocks fell to the Explorers, 6-1, with Gabriel Russotto being the lone winner. Saint Peter's last win against La Salle came on February 7, 2016 at home; it was a 5-2 win.

 

Up Next - The men's tennis team will take a two week hiatus and return home for a March 16 match against Wagner College. First serve is set to be hit at 2:45pm.
