ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF men's tennis team returns to action at home this Saturday, hosting No. 52 DePaul at 10 a.m. at the UCF Tennis Complex. Admission is free for all spectators.

The Knights (7-11) are 4-5 this season at home and play their seventh-consecutive nationally-ranked opponent this weekend. Junior Joe Delinks (Falmouth, Mass.) leads the team with a 13-11 record and is 9-5 in duals this spring.

Last week the Knights upset a nationally-ranked opponent for the second time this season when they took down No. 60 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 4-1. Juniors Claudio Romano (Valencia, Venezuela) and Delinks led the charge with three set victories at No. 3 and 4, respectively. Delinks later joined senior Blaze Schwartz (Pensacola, Fla.) at No. 1 doubles for an 8-5 victory over Laurent Montoisy and Gergo Weidinger.

DePaul (11-6) fell to No. 50 USF in Tampa on Thursday. The Blue Demons have dropped their last three matches to ranked opponents. The Knights swept DePaul 7-0 last year at home.
