CHARLOTTESVILLE - The reigning NCAA Champion Virginia men's tennis team will begin its quest for another title this weekend by hosting first and second round action of the 2014 NCAA Tournament Saturday and Sunday at the Snyder Tennis Center. Due to weather, the Cavaliers' first round match against Army will be played indoors at 2:45 p.m., with Penn State and UNC Wilmington meeting in the other first round match at 9 a.m. The first round winners will meet in the second round at 1 p.m. on Sunday for a trip to the round of 16 next week at Georgia.
This weekend's matches are scheduled to be played outdoors at the Snyder Tennis Center and there will be free parking for fans at the Culbreth Garage.
