WACO, Texas -The sixth-ranked Baylor men's tennis team will host Cameron University and Louisiana Friday at the Hawkins Indoor Tennis Center. The Bears are scheduled to begin Friday with a contest against Cameron at 2 p.m., followed by a match against Louisiana-Lafayette at 7 p.m.

BU enters Friday's doubleheader riding a four-match win streak that includes three wins against ranked opponents. The Bears last outing was Sunday when they captured a 6-1 win over No. 73 Purdue.

"We have to do a couple of things," head coach Matt Knollsaid. "We have to transition a couple of guys who haven't been playing back in. We have had a guy who has been hurt who I think will be ready to play some Friday which will be great for him. We will have Diego back from playing in the Davis Cup and that will be great. We will have an opportunity to get our doubles teams back to the way that we want them."

BU currently has four singles competitors ranked in the latest ITA Rankings. Julian Lenz, Patrick Pradella, Diego Galeano and Tony Lupieriare ranked 2, 7, 18, and 92 respectively.

Cameron University enters the match against the Bears with a 1-0 overall record on the season. The Aggies last match was an 8-1 win over Oklahoma Baptist on September 10. Baylor has only played Cameron once prior to Friday's match, and holds a 1-0 all-time series record.

The Ragin' Cajuns enter Friday's match with a 4-1 record on the season. The last outing for Louisiana was Feb. 1 as the Cajuns claim a 5-0 win over Jackson State. The lone loss on the year for Louisiana came against No. 14 Texas A&M in a match played in College Station. Baylor leads the Ragin' Cajuns in the all-time head-to-head matchup 9-5, including a perfect 8-0 record under head coach Matt Knoll.

"We have to continue to build momentum," Knoll said. "It will be a lot of tennis which will be terrific. We just need to continue to improve for what is coming up down the road."
