GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - After playing its first 12 matches of the spring season away from home, the Green Bay men's tennis team (8-4, 2-0 Horizon League) is set to make its home debut on Saturday against the defending Horizon League champions from Cleveland State at 4 p.m. at Western Racquet and Fitness.

Green Bay has won four of its last six matches, falling only to Big Ten opponents Purdue and Wisconsin. Cleveland State enters the contest with a 7-7 overall record and a 1-0 mark in league play. The Vikings have won 26 consecutive matches against Horizon League competition.

"We are excited to be playing at home the next few weekends," Phoenix coach Mark Thomas said. "We'd like to have as many fans as possible to come out and support the team to add to the home court advantage. Cleveland State has been dominant in our league the past three years and presents a strong challenge. We've had a great week of practice and are looking forward to what should be a very competitive match."

Following the meeting with Cleveland State, the Phoenix continues conference play as it hosts Youngstown State on Sunday at 10 a.m.
