CLEMSON, S.C. –  The Clemson men’s tennis team travels to the state of Virginia this weekend to take on Virginia Tech on March 31 at 12 p.m. and No. 3 Virginia on April 2 at 1 p.m. The Tigers are coming off a weekend where they fell twice, but senior Daffra Sanon and junior Sam Edwards upset the No. 1 doubles team in the country from Wake Forest.

Clemson is looking to snap their currently losing skid and jump ahead of Virginia Tech in the ACC standings. When the Tigers face Virginia, they aim to hand the back to back national champions their first loss of the 2017 season. In the last twelve matches for the Cavaliers, they have outscored opponents 60-2 in games.
