LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The University of New Mexico men's tennis team concludes its fall schedule this weekend when it participates in the Rebel Classic in Las Vegas. Action gets started Friday at 9 a.m., with a round of doubles followed by two rounds of singles. Saturday's schedule will be reversed with only one round of singles and two rounds of doubles starting at 9 a.m. The finals begin Sunday at 10 a.m. Joining the Lobos in the field are Arkansas, Fresno State, Fresno Pacific, Oklahoma, Tennessee and host UNLV.

The Lobos are playing in Las Vegas after the Oregon Fall Invitational, scheduled for Nov. 9-11, was cancelled. The ITA Regional Qualifier was also held in Las Vegas (Oct. 17-21), making this the second consecutive appearance in Las Vegas for the Lobos.

Only three Lobos will be traveling this time around to Las Vegas: Senior Chris Parkes, junior Derek Lynch and freshman Joe Wood.
