Full NCAA Doubles Bracket

ATHENS, Ga. – Classes let out a couple weeks ago, but summer hasn't started just yet for the doubles tandem of Alexis Heugas and Antoine Baroz of the VCU men's tennis team.

The sophomore duo will open up play in the 2012 NCAA Doubles Championship on Thursday when they battle the 14th-ranked pair of Nassim Slilam and Billy Federhofer from the University of Florida.

Baroz and Heugas became the fourth doubles team in school history to receive a bid to the NCAA Doubles Championship. The tandem earned the CAA's automatic bid after posting a 13-6 mark this spring and the 63rd ranking in the last ITA doubles poll.

Federhofer and Slilam went 25-15 overall and 12-10 this spring en route to the #14 ranking in the country.

First serve on the campus of the University of Georgia is set for 4:30 p.m.
