FLUSHING, N.Y.-----Georgia junior Nathan Pasha won his opening round match of the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships on Thursday, defeating Tennessee’s 24th-ranked Hunter Reese, 6-2, 6-4, at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

No. 32 Pasha will face Oklahoma’s No. 2 seed Guillermo Alcorta in the round of 16 on Friday, and the winner will play again Friday in the quarterfinals. Pasha is riding a seven-match winning streak that started with his run to the ITA Southeast Regional title last month in Atlanta.

“Nathan was in control even though he got behind a little in the second set,” said head coach Manuel Diaz. “It was a good day for him. We’re looking forward to seeing how he plays tomorrow in the round of 16.”

In other action, Bulldog sophomore Austin Smith was edged by Notre Dame’s 31st-ranked Greg Andrews, 2-6, 7-6(7), 6-2. The Cumming, Ga., native will play in the consolation draw on Friday.

“Austin played well, but his opponent just won a couple of crucial points late in the second set and then won a long tiebreaker,” Diaz said. “It was Austin’s first match in about a month, not to take anything away from Greg; he played a great match. I think Austin will be ready to go again tomorrow.”

Garrett Brasseaux, Eric Diaz, Hernus Pieters and Ben Wagland will be in action Friday at the Bulldog Scramble in Athens. Play is scheduled to begin with four doubles matches at 9 a.m. The three-day event will be held at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, and admission is free.
