Men’s tennis team to face Blazers

The No. 3 seeded USF men’s tennis team plays UAB today in the second round of the Conference USA Championship in Louisville.

The Bulls (14-4) received a first-round bye as one of the top four seeds. Sixth-seeded UAB earned the right to face USF by defeating Marquette 4-0 Thursday at the Bass-Rudd Tennis Center.

The Blazers (14-8) won 8-1 and 8-6 at No. 1 and No. 3 doubles, respectively, to secure the doubles point. Wins at Nos. 3, 4 and 5 singles sealed the victory, and the teams did not bother to finish the remaining singles matches.

The winner of the USF-UAB match goes on to play the winner of the TCU-Southern Miss match in the semifinals Saturday at 9 a.m. TCU is the top seed, and will face No. 9 Southern Miss after the Golden Eagles defeated Charlotte 4-3 Thursday.

In other matches, Louisville shut out East Carolina 4-0 and DePaul did the same to Saint Louis.
