MTENNIS CENTRAL: #6 Vols vs. #50 OK State

Jan. 30, 2014


Friday, Jan. 31, 4 p.m. ET
Stillwater, Okla.

EXPERIMENTAL RULES: College tennis teams across the country will be playing with an experimental scoring system in January and February. As always, teams will be vying for four team points, but the match scoring will be a little different. The three doubles matches to start the contest will be played as six-game sets, instead of eight-game sets. Matches will feature no-ad scoring and a tiebreaker if it is tied at 5-5. The team that wins two of the three doubles matches wins one team point. Six singles matches will then be played, each worth one team point. Matches will be best-of-three sets with no-ad scoring. Rules will return to NCAA format after the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February.
