ARLINGTON, Texas – UT Arlington men's tennis will travel to Houston, Texas to compete in its first competition of 2014 at Rice University.

The Mavericks take on the Owls of Rice on Friday at 3 p.m. before facing the University of New Orleans on Saturday at 11 a.m. UTA will conclude the weekend play against Rice on Sunday at 11 a.m.

"It's a young team this year, but we have good experience," UT Arlington coach Diego Benitez said. "We expect to be competitive and compete well in the Sun Belt."

Six returners and five newcomers make up the 2014 squad. The Mavs will be led by sophomore Carlos Arbiza who broke out at a top performer last season.

"We have to support each other," Arbiza said. "We encourage each other to do well and really cheer everyone on."
