     NEW ORLEANS — Vincenzo Ciccone, a member of the Xavier University of Louisiana men's tennis team, will represent Jamaica next week in a Davis Cup Group III tie.
     Ciccone, who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y., was eligible for the Jamaican team because his mother is a native of the country. He qualified for the team by winning 2-of-3 singles matches in trials at Kingston, Jamaica, in April.
     The six-day, nine-nation Group III competition will begin Monday at Palmas Athletic Club in Humacao, Puerto Rico. The top two countries will be promoted to Americas Zone
Group II in 2015. The other competing countries are the Bahamas, Bermuda, Costa Rica, Cuba, Honduras, Panama, Puerto Rico and Trinidad & Tobago.
     Ciccone was a junior and in his first season at Xavier in 2013-14. He was 10-7 in singles and 4-1 in doubles to help the Gold Rush reach the quarterfinals of the NAIA National Championship and rank eighth in the NAIA postseason coaches poll. Ciccone, a graduate of Aspirations High School and ASA College, was the 2012 American Tennis Association men's singles champion.
