The 'E' level of Jadwin Gymnasium will be a busy place Friday and Saturday with both the men's and women's tennis teams hosting matches on each day.

The men will start it off with a 1 p.m. match Friday against Stony Brook followed by a 5:30 p.m. women's match against DePaul. The women will start Saturday with a noon match against Binghamton followed by a 5 p.m. men's match against St. John's.

The men's team (7-3) enters as the 52nd-ranked team in the nation and winners of four straight, all in Jadwin Gym. Matija Pecotic is ranked as the No. 6 singles player in the nation, and Pecotic and Zack McCourt are the No. 29 doubles team.

Stony Brook is 0-5 entering the weekend. Princeton has taken on the Seawolves 12 times, meeting annually since 2001. Stony Brook won in 2009 and 2010, but Princeton has taken the last two, by margins of 6-1 in 2011 and 7-0 in 2012. St. John's is 1-9 entering a Friday match against Memphis.

Princeton's men have met St. John's 17 times, including 16 times since 1996. Princeton holds a 14-3 advantage in the series, but St. John's has won the last three, including a regular-season and an ECAC meeting last year and a regular-season meeting in 2011 after Princeton won the teams' match in the ECAC Tournament.

The women's team (5-3) has Amanda Muliawan ranked as the No. 112 player in the nation and split a two-match trip to Colorado last weekend, defeating Colorado 4-3 before losing to Denver, also 4-3.

DePaul enters the match at 9-5 with one ranked singles player, No. 85 Matea Cutura. Binghamton is 3-8 entering the weekend. Princeton and DePaul have met once, in 2008, a 4-3 Princeton loss, while Princeton and Binghamton have met once, a 7-0 Tiger win in 2003.

Following the weekend doubleheaders, the men's team will head to California for three spring-break matches, while the women's team will head to Syracuse for a Mar. 17 match before going to California for a match with Loyola Marymount during the break.
