CHICAGO – For the second year in a row, coach Matt Brothers and his team have been recognized as the early favorite to win the BIG EAST Men’s Tennis Championship.

Returning to the courts at 4 p.m., No. 2 St. John’s will play No. 7 Xavier, No. 3 Marquette will challenge No. 6 Creighton and the fourth-seeded Butler will match up against No. 5 Georgetown.
