CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The No. 63 University of Miami men's tennis team will conclude its regular season schedule this Sunday, April 15 at the No. 3 ranked Virginia Cavaliers. The match will begin at 11 a.m. at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center.
Miami (8-11, 1-9) is looking to earn an upset victory over the Cavaliers and end their season on a high note. The team lost their last match when they traveled to Virginia Tech this past Friday.
