TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The No. 53 LSU men's tennis team (5-5, 0-3 SEC) travels to Tuscaloosa, Ala., to face the No. 31 Alabama Crimson Tide (10-5, 1-2 SEC) on Sunday, March 10 at the UA Varsity Courts at 1 p.m. CT.

"Alabama has been playing at a high level their last couple of weeks," head coach Jeff Brown said. "We're working on ourselves right now trying to put together a solid match on the road to give ourselves something to build on."

The Tigers are still looking for their first SEC victory of the 2013 season after losing to No. 37 Auburn (9-4, 1-2 SEC) 5-2 on Friday afternoon in Baton Rouge.

After losing their first two SEC matchups of the year against No. 9 Ole Miss (9-2, 3-0 SEC) and No. 11 Mississippi State (12-3, 2-1 SEC) last week, Alabama earned their first conference win of the season on Friday in Fayetteville, Ark., as the Tide took down No. 42 Arkansas 6-1.

The Tigers have started the season 0-3 in SEC play but they look to pick up their first win tomorrow in Tuscaloosa.
