Gainesville, FL - The ninth-ranked University of Florida men’s
tennis team travels to Knoxville, Tenn., to compete in the SEC Indoor
Championships, which include both a singles and a doubles draw, from
Jan. 14-17 in the Goodfriend Indoor Tennis Center on the University of
UF looks to build on a strong fall season that saw three players climb
to career-high national rankings, with senior Alexandre Lacroix (Paris,
France) at No. 4 (tied for a career best) and sophomores Sekou Bangoura Jr. (Bradenton, Fla.) and Bob van Overbeek (Boca Raton, Fla.) ranked 28th and 52nd, respectively. That trio combined to go 39-7 (.783) in singles action during the fall season.
Lacroix and former doubles partner and fellow All-American Antoine
Benneteau won the doubles draw at the 2010 SEC Indoor event, while
Bangoura made a run to the singles quarterfinals and the doubles
semifinals in what was the first event of his collegiate career. Also at
the 2010 SEC Indoors, Lacroix advanced to the Round of 16 and both van Overbeek and junior Nassim Slilam (Paris, France) reached the Round of 32.
A live blog of the event will be hosted at UTSports.com, and all scores
will be posted on that website, as well. Score updates will also be
available by following SEC Indoors on Twitter at
twitter.com/SECIndoors2011. A recap of all the Gator scores will also be available each day on gatorzone.com.
