ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - The UCF men's tennis team returns to action with a pair of home matches this week.  The Knights will host Bethune-Cookman on Wednesday and Troy on Friday with both contests scheduled for 2 p.m. starts.

This week's matches will be the final home outing for UCF, which will end the regular season on the road at Memphis and Middle Tennessee.  The Knights will then head back to Memphis for the American Athletic Conference Championships April 18-20.

Bethune-Cookman makes the trip from Daytona to Orlando with just a 4-15 overall record in 2014.  After earning back-to-back wins against Appalachian State and Chicago State, the Wildcats have lost three in a row coming into Wednesday's matchup.

Troy is currently 6-14 and will travel to Jacksonville State for a Wednesday match before challenging the no. 60- ranked Knights on Friday.  The Trojans recently lost two out of three at the Middle Tennessee Shootout, picking up their only victory against Illinois State.

Admission to this week's home match is free.  Fans unable to attend can keep up with all the action by following @UCF_MTennis on Twitter.
