ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com)--
UCF Volleyball closes out the non-conference schedule at the The Venue hosting the Holiday Inn Orlando East UCF Area Challenge this weekend. The Knights face UNC Asheville, Central Arkansas and Central Michigan in a two-day tournament.

UCF Volleyball is presented by the Holiday Inn Orlando East UCF Area. Garage F parking will be unavailable this weekend. On Friday, fans can park in the baseball parking lot (shown in the map). Saturday parking will be available in the red and blue lots.

The first 200 students to Friday's 7:30 p.m., match will receive an early access pass to the UCF vs Maryland football game, while the first 100 students will get a Knightro bobblehead. Tickets will be free to Saturday's game against Central Michigan.

"As we head into our final weekend, we continue with the trend of playing winning teams," said head coach Todd Dagenais. "It is one of those weekends where all three teams are very competitive."

The Knights open the weekend against UNC Asheville on Friday at noon. The last time the two teams met was in 1999. UCF took three of the four sets for the victory. The Bulldogs enter the bout with a 5-2 record, sweeping their home tournament with wins over North Carolina Central, Stetson and Alabama A&M.

This will be the first meeting between UCF and Central Arkansas. The Bears enter the contest with 4-6 record, after defeating Tennessee-Martin and dropping matches to Arkansas State and Tulsa at the A-State Invitational.

The Knights cap off the weekend with a match against Central Michigan on Saturday at 4 p.m. The match has special meaning for Dagenais who graduated from CMU in 1995. The Chippewas enter the competition with a 5-4 record. CMU swept the Valpariso Popcorn Festival Tournament with wins over Valpariso, South Dakota St. and Southeast Missouri. The teams last met in 2012, with UCF sweeping CMU 3-0.
