The UK men’s tennis team will host its last two home matches of the year Wednesday.

No. 8 UK will face off with No. 5 Ohio State in the afternoon before going against in-state foe Murray State in the evening.

The match against Ohio State will be the Cats’ eighth against a top-10 opponent this season.

UK has won four and lost three of those previous seven matches against top-10 teams.

The Buckeyes boast the No. 4- and No. 13-ranked players in the country, who will challenge UK’s No. 18 senior Anthony Rossi and No. 24 junior Tom Jomby.

The Buckeyes have a total of five players ranked in the top-85 in singles.

Ohio State also boasts three doubles pairing in the top-60.

Outside of the match against No. 2 USC in the ITA Indoor National Championships, the Buckeyes look to be the toughest test for UK this season.

The match against Ohio State is slated to start at 2 p.m. with the match against Murray State to follow at 7 p.m.

Both matches will take place at the UK Tennis Complex.
