TAMPA (April 29, 2014) –
The NCAA announced their field of 64 for the Men’s Tennis Championship and USF will begin its road to Athens with a trip to Gainesville to take on Florida State Saturday, May 10.  The match is set to begin at 9:00 a.m.

USF earned an automatic berth to the championship field by winning the inaugural American Athletic Conference on April 20 by defeating Memphis 4-3 in the title match.  The Bulls fell behind 1-0 after doubles before rallying to win four of six singles matches.

The matchup with FSU will be a rematch as the two sides met earlier this season with the Seminoles picking up a 4-3 victory on March 1.  Since that contest, USF has gone 13-3 and sit at 18-6 on the year.  The winner of the match will take on the winner of Florida and St. John’s.

First and second round matchups are played on campus sites before the final 16 teams converge to Athens beginning on May16.  To keep up with the latest information, follow @USFBullsMTennis on Twitter and check back to
