CHICAGO -- For the final time this season, the DePaul men's tennis team will hit the hard courts at home in Chicago. The squad's last home regular season contest comes Saturday against Marquette.
Match time is scheduled for 3 p.m.
The meeting between the Blue Demons (8-12, 2-1) and Golden Eagles (12-8, 1-0) also marks the final home match for senior Filip Dzanko, who will be honored Saturday afternoon.
A native of Split, Croatia, Dzanko has compiled an 83-40 career singles record, going 16-7 as a freshman (2010-11), 28-10 as a sophomore (2011-12), 17-13 his junior year (2012-13); he is 22-10 thus far in 2013-14, his senior campaign.
