TAMPA - USF has never lost to UCF since Agustin Moreno took over as head coach and the Bulls plan to keep it that way.

The Bulls look to extend a special streak against the Knights when the programs face off 2 p.m. Wednesday at the USF Varsity Courts. UCF (7-3) heads to Tampa with confidence after winning two consecutive matches.

"We've been successful playing against them, but they're always and dangerous," said Moreno, who is in his eighth season at USF.

USF (3-3) also shoots for its third straight victory after defeating two Big East opponents at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center last weekend. The Bulls started their run with a 7-0 victory over Georgetown last Friday and posted a 6-1 win over St. John's the next day at the site of the U.S. Open.

"I think it's a great experience. We played at one of the biggest arenas in the world," Moreno said. "The girls were really excited and we played really well against teams that normally play indoors."

The Bulls will spend the weekend on the road and start their trip at UNC-Wilmington on Friday at 2 p.m. USF then heads to Richmond, Va., to take on VCU on Sunday at 10 a.m. USF finishes its regular season with 10 consecutive home matches.
