NORMAN, Okla. - The University of Oklahoma men's tennis team will be in action this week in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Sooners will take on Chamindae University on Monday, March 18, Hawaii on March 19, Idaho on March 20 and Wisconsin-Green Bay on March 21. Match time with Chaminade, Hawaii and Idaho are set for 2 p.m., while the match with Wisconsin-Green Bay will start at 8 a.m. All matches will be played in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Oklahoma is 5-4 on the season, with all four losses coming on the road against ranked opponents. Chaminade is 0-8 on the year, Hawaii is 8-6, Idaho is 1-6 and Wisconsin-Green Bay is 8-6 on the season.

"I think Hawaii is probably our toughest competition," head coach Paul Lockwood said. "Our number one goal is to come back 4-0. I think if we are ready to play, keep our starters healthy, and play reasonably well, we have a good shot of going 4-0."

Oklahoma returns to action March 28 against Wichita State. Match time is set for 2 p.m. at the newly renovated OU Headington Family Tennis Center in Norman, Okla.
