The Matchup

LSU has the 2-1 advantage against the North Florida Ospreys. The teams last met in 2017 at the LSU Tennis Complex where North Florida took its first win in the series, 5-2. Current sophomore Agie Moreno earned a straight-set, 6-2, 6-0 win on court six.

Tiger Tidbits

LSU is coming off of a hard-fought match at Rice, where the Tigers fell to 5-3 on the season.

Gabor Csonka and Rafael Wagner lead the Tigers with 10 wins each on the singles courts, and Csonka has a team-best 6-2 record on the dual season.

Wagner and Moreno are each on one-match win streak in singles and are on a 3-0 run on the doubles courts. Csonka and Julian Saborio are also 3-0 to start the season on the doubles court with all of the wins coming from court one. 

Notes on the Ospreys

North Florida is 3-4 on the year and is coming off of a 6-1 loss at Central Florida. The lone point for the Ospreys was a court four win by Till Von Winning. Prior to competing against UCF, North Florida defeated Troy, 6-1. 

Winning has a team-best 8-7 singles record on the year and holds a 2-1 record on court four in the dual season.
