Men’s tennis looks to continue home winning streak
The No. 40 South Florida men’s tennis team plays host to a difficult opponent today. The Bulls will take on No. 29 Virginia Commonwealth University in what may be their toughest challenge until the end of the season.
USF will look to freshman Lucas Jovita – the No. 84 singles player in the NCAA – for another strong performance. The Bulls will try to avenge last season’s 6-1 loss at the hands of the Rams.
Mahmoud Hamed will likely play in the No. 2 singles match after a 6-2, 6-3 win over Central Florida’s Nikolas Overkemping.
The Bulls are undefeated at home this season, and will look to use that momentum as a home-court advantage against VCU.
“We want to finish undefeated at home. It will help us in the Big East tournament seedings. It is very important to us,” coach Don Barr said.
The No. 1 doubles match will likely face VCU’s Sebastian Ripoll and Emil Lindgren, the NCAA’s No. 51 ranked doubles team, against the Bulls No. 1 team of Thomas Estrada and Daniel Daudt. Jovita will likely face William and Mary’s Alex Cojanu in the No. 1 singles matchup.
The Bulls’ Jamal Adderley – playing No. 3 singles – will attempt to bounce back from a 7-5, 6-2 loss in his match against UCF’s Johan Beigart when he plays Lindgren.
Today’s match could set the tone for the Bulls’ postseason run. They have only one match after today before hosting the Big East Championship tournament April 17-20.

Bulls battle with ECU in OT win
Coach Brian Gregory said Tuesday the Bulls didn’t play complete, 40-minute games in their two losses last week. It’s debatable if they did Wednesday night against East Carolina (11-18, 5-11) at the Yuengling Center, but it was more than enough to put up a 73-68 overtime win. “It’s funny. There were stretches where we played […]
