GREENVILLE, S.C. -- The Furman men's tennis team will entertain former Southern Conference foe Georgia Southern Friday at 3 p.m. at the Mickel Tennis Center.  

Over the years, Furman has been very successful on its home court. During the past 16 seasons, the Paladins have lost only 31 matches on their home court, posting an impressive record of 132-31 since 2002. 

Saturday's match marks the 24th meeting between the two schools.  The Paladins, who lead the series 18-5, defeated the Eagles, 5-2, in Greenville in 2014.  

Furman enters the contest riding a six-match winning streak.  The Paladins hold a 7-3 overall record and 1-0 SoCon mark after blanking Appalachian State, 7-0, Saturday.  Sophomore Ivan Mitric ranks 104th nationally.  Junior Jake Bhangdia boasts a 6-1 singles record at flight four, and sophomore Drew Singerman is 7-0 in singles play. 

Georgia Southern comes to town with a 6-3 record.  The Eagles beat  S.C. State, 6-1, on Monday, after losing to Stetson, 6-1, last Friday.
