PROVIDENCE, R.I. (News Release) – University of Louisville sophomore Sebastian Stiefelmeyer was named BIG EAST Men’s Tennis Player of the Week on Feb. 26.
 
"I am happy for Sebastian,” said U of L head coach Rex Ecarma. “Clinching a team match on the road is very difficult and defeating a good player with a nice ranking is icing on the cake. He has improved his transition game and it paid dividends."
