ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - After playing well against some of the top teams in the nation this week, UCF junior Nuno Henriques (Funchal, Portugal) was selected as the Conference USA Men's Golfer of the Week Wednesday. Henriques tied for 14th place at The Prestige at PGA WEST in La Quinta, Calif., which featured five of the top-40 teams in the country.

He concluded the three-day event with a 2-over par 218 and led the Knights to a 10th-place finish. The honor is the first C-USA weekly award for Henriques.

Henriques has been the top finisher for UCF in two of the team's three events this fall. He did not compete a year ago, sitting out the campaign as a redshirt.

UCF will conclude the fall portion of its schedule close to home, competing at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational starting on Oct. 25.
