ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - Class is back in session on the UCF campus, and the women's tennis team also will be kick-starting the spring schedule as the Knights host Texas Tech and Rice for the UCF Invitational. Action at the UCF Tennis Complex will take place Saturday-Monday and admission will be free.

This weekend begins a 2012 spring slate which is highlighted by 13 home events, including the first dual-match at the UCF Tennis Complex Feb. 3 vs. East Carolina.

In the fall, Taylor Dubins paced the Knights with a 5-1 singles record, followed by Jenna Doerfler and Alexis Rodriguez who each had four victories. On the doubles courts, Dubins and Andrea Yacaman teamed up for a 5-3 mark, while Rodriguez and Genevieve Lorbergs collected three wins.

Texas Tech sits at No. 46 in the nation, with the doubles pair of Kenna Kilgo and Samantha Adams ranked No. 45 on the doubles chart. The Red Raiders went 18-8 last season with a 7-4 record in Big 12 play.

Rice enters the spring ranked No. 71 in the country, and boasted a 14-10 record in 2011. The Knights will be looking for a little revenge as the Owls topped UCF in the Conference USA Quarterfinals a year ago.
