Tennis teams drop home matches

After picking up wins in each of their previous matches, UNO men's and women's tennis both lost last week at the Hanscom Brandeis Tennis Center.  Both teams now face a tough road slate, which won't have them back in Omaha until March 29.
The men play one more in Omaha on March 9 against Oral Roberts, then hit the road for matches at Hilton Head, S.C.  The women play their next three matches in Des Moines, three more after that in Kansas City, then join the men's team in South Carolina mid March.
