MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- - The doubles and singles finals are set for the Wilson/ITA Southeast Region Men's Tennis Tournament being hosted by the University of Memphis at The Racquet Club of Memphis.

In the doubles competition, the LSU duo of Mark Growcott and Ken Skupski used a 9-7 win over Vanderbilt's Scott Brown and Jason Pinsky to advance to Monday's doubles final. There, the LSU duo will face Florida's Janne Holmia and Greg Oullette for a shot at the championship. Holmia and Oullette elminated another LSU team already, downing the duo of Danny Bryan and Jason Hazley, 8-6, in the semifinals.
