Crimson Tide Men's Tennis:

The Alabama men's tennis team had two singles players and one doubles pair earn national rankings this week announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Tuesday.

The Crimson Tide (9-14, 1-8 SEC) has collected 51 wins in singles play since beginning the dual match season, and it has registered 30 victories in doubles play.

Sophomore anchor Mazen Osama moved up four spots to earn a No. 27 national ranking in singles play, marking his seventh week in the rankings since beginning the dual match season.

Osama has 11 wins in singles play since starting the spring season, and he has registered nine wins over nationally-ranked opponents this year. Last weekend, Osama defeated Kentucky's No. 16-ranked singles player Will Bushamuka in straight sets, 6-1, 6-2.

Freshman Thibault Cancel leaped 20 spots to earn a No. 97 national ranking in singles after collecting 10 wins in the dual match season.

Cancel has been nationally-ranked six times since the start of the spring season, and he has registered five wins over nationally-ranked singles opponents.

Last weekend, Cancel won in straight sets over the Wildcats' No. 38-ranked singles player Ryotaro Matsumura, 6-0, 6-2.

Osama and sophomore Spencer Richey jumped 24 spots to break into the top-15 at No.14 in doubles play after collecting 11 wins since the start of the spring season, with all matches coming from the top court.

Alabama went 1-1 last weekend in a pair of road matches to continue Southeastern Conference play. The Tide lost a 4-3 thriller to then-No. 47 Vanderbilt on Friday night, before going on to outlast then-No. 23 Kentucky in a 4-3 result on Sunday afternoon.

The Tide will be back in action on Thursday, April 13, when it travels to Knoxville, Tenn., to take on the Tennessee Volunteers in the final match of the regular season.
