The Cavaliers are coming off a 7-0 win over fellow Atlantic region team Richmond on Tuesday, the fourth time in the last six matches the Cavaliers have swept their opponent. Senior Alexander Ritschard (Zurich, Switzerland) played No. 1 singles for the second-straight match, snapping UR's Jacob Dunbar's 18-match winning streak.

Virginia has five players ranked in the current Oracle/ITA singles rankings, led by senior Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (Charlotte, N.C.), the reigning ACC Player of the Week, who moved up to No. 12. Kwiatkowski is 8-2 in ACC matches this season and 21-5 overall.

Senior J.C.

Aragone is 27-8 in singles this season, including a 17-4 mark in dual matches.

Miami is coming off a pair of road losses at NC State and Duke last weekend. Piotr Lomacki is the only Hurricane player in the Oracle/ITA singles rankings, falling to No. 59 in this week's listing. Lomacki is 11-7 this season in singles, including a win over North Carolina's Ronnie Schneider.

Florida State has dropped five of its last seven contests, but is coming off a 5-2 victory over NC State last Saturday. No. 38 Aziz Dougaz is 14-8 this season with a 9-4 record at No. 1 singles. No. 74 Guy Iradukunda has a 20-13 singles record this season. No. 94 Lucas Poullain has won five-straight matches.
