Sept. 16, 2013
CHICAGO — Head coach Matt Brothers and the DePaul men's tennis program have released their schedule for the 2013-14 season.
The Blue Demons, who welcome three new student athletes to the program this year, open up the season this weekend at the Purdue Invitational in West Lafayette, Ind. The invitational is the first of five tournaments for DePaul this fall.
Also new to the Blue Demons program is Assistant Coach Artem Iliushin, who was a two-time All-American at Mississippi State.
Brothers, now in his sixth season at the helm of the program, will also rely on six returnees from last year's squad to lead the program.
Following the Purdue Invite, the Blue Demons will participate in the ITA All-Americans (Sept. 28-Oct. 6), Ball State Invite (Oct. 4-6) , ITA Midwest Regional (Oct. 17-21) and the University of Minnesota Invitational (Nov. 1-3) before the spring season.
DePaul will play 16 dual matches in 2014, including four against BIG EAST rivals, St. Johns (Jan. 31), Butler (March 8), Xavier (March 15) and Marquette (April 12). The Blue Demons host UIC (Jan. 17) and Green Bay (Jan. 25) to kick off the spring slate.
In addition to the dual matches, DePaul will travel to the HEB Invitational in Corpus Christi, Texas, and the MTSU Shootout in Murfreesboro, Tenn. Following the regular season, which ends on April 18, the Blue Demons will head to New York City for the BIG EAST Championships on April 24-27.
All home matches this spring will be played at Lakeshore Athletic Club in Chicago.
