The Kentucky men's tennis team will have a chance to add another chapter to an already memorable season beginning next week.

The Southeastern Conference champions received the No. 6 overall seed in the NCAA Men's Tennis Championships and will play host to first and second round matches for the fourth consecutive season and Hilary J. Boone Tennis Complex.

The Wildcats (26-5) will face Radford (20-5) in the tournament's opening round, while familiar foes await in a potential second round matchup. Indiana (21-8) and Louisville (18-9) will play in the first round, with the winner advancing to play UK or Radford with a berth in the Sweet 16 at stake. All rounds beginning with the Sweet 16 will be played in Athens, Ga.

Earlier this season, UK won a 7-0 decision over the Hoosiers in Lexington. In last year's NCAA Tournament, UK defeated U of L in a memorable second round showdown between the two rivals. The Cats beat the Cardinals en route to the Elite Eight, the best finish in school history. This year, UK will be looking to advance to the first Final Four in Dennis Emery's three-decade tenure.

We'll have plenty more coverage leading up to and during UK's 2012 NCAA Tournament run, so stay tuned. In the mean time, check out the full release on UKathletics.com for more information.
