Men's Tennis viewing NCAA Selection Show on Tuesday at the University Center

The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's tennis team will find out its NCAA Tournament destination on Tuesday afternoon when the team will view the NCAA selection show at the University Center on campus. The show is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. and will be streamed live on NCAA.com.

Fans and students are encouraged to attend the watch party alongside the team as they await word on where they will continue play in the postseason.

After taking home the Southland Conference Tournament Championship on Sunday, the Islanders earned an automatic selection into the field of 64 for the NCAA Championships. With the bid secured, they now await their destination until the show on Tuesday afternoon.

The appearance in the national tournament means the Islanders have made the field every time they have been eligible since Director of Tennis Steve Moore has returned to the program.

This past weekend, Texas A&M - Corpus Christi defeated Lamar 4-0 in the semifinals before taking a hard-fought, 4-1 victory over host UTSA in San Antonio to wrap-up the title.
