About Michigan State
Michigan, which travels to Wisconsin Friday, will play its final road match of the season Sunday against the Gophers. The Spartans, 8-12 overall, are still seeking their first win away from home as they are 0-10 on the road. MSU is 2-5 in the conference. Drew Lied is the team's primary No. 1 singles player. He is 7-9 at the top spot and 11-13 overall. He plays No. 1 doubles with John Patrick Mullane. That duo is 9-10 together.
The experimental scoring format using to begin the college tennis season has reverted back to the old system as of Feb. 10 for the women. From this point forward, there will be three doubles matches using eight-game pro-sets and the team winning at least two of the matches gets one team point. If the pro-set is tied 7-7, a seven-point tiebreaker is played. If one team wins two doubles matches, the third match will go unfinished.
Six singles matches are then played and each are worth one team point. The matches are best-of-three sets with tiebreakers played to seven points if the set is tied 6-6. Once a team has reached four team points, it has clinched the team victory. The remaining matches are completed with a 10-point match tiebreaker played in place of a third set.
