    CARBONDALE, Ill.-- The Southern Illinois University men's tennis team will host its final home matches of the season this week welcoming Creighton and Drake to Carbondale.

    The Salukis and Creighton are scheduled for a Friday afternoon match at 1 p.m. on University Courts. On Saturday Southern Illinois and Drake will begin at 10 a.m.
