ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF men's tennis team takes to the road Friday for a two-match road trip that includes stops at Miami and Florida Atlantic. The weekend opens at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center Friday, as Miami (4-2) hosts UCF (2-4) for a 2 p.m. match. Miami opened the season No. 31, and is currently ranked 39th nationally.

The Knights have Saturday off, but are back in action Sunday against Florida Atlantic (4-1). The match, at the Patch Reef Tennis Center in Boca Raton, is set to begin at Noon.

In play this weekend, UCF is looking to compete in its first complete match in nearly two weeks. Due to weather conditions, doubles play had been canceled in its previous two matches.

The visit to south Florida this weekend will be a homecoming of sorts for three Knights. Mario Samson, Matthew Gladstone and Juan Bolona played tennis in the area during high school.
