ATHENS, Ga. --- The Georgia men's tennis team jumped one spot to No. 2 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) team ranking released Thursday and will hold there throughout the duration of the NCAA Championships kicking off May 10.  Georgia (22-4) was awarded the No. 3 national seed in Tuesday night's selection show.

In today's singles poll, senior KU Singh jumped to a career-best No. 4 national ranking, while freshman Ben Wagland also reached a new career high at No. 33. Sophomore Nathan Pasha came in at No. 47 with junior Hernus Pieters at No. 115. In doubles, the team of Wagland and Pieters held steady at No. 5 this week, while Pasha and Garrett Brasseaux are No. 15 and Pasha and Wagland are No. 76.

Georgia opens NCAA Championships play next week at home in Athens, taking on American East champion Binghamton on Fri., May 10 at 1 p.m. in first round action. With a win, the Bulldogs would meet the winner of the Wake Forest-Northwestern match in the second round on Sat., May 11 at 3 p.m. with a berth in the round of 16 on the line. The University of Illinois will host the round of 16 and beyond, as well as the individual singles and doubles tournaments, for the first time.

Georgia saw five players awarded at-large bids into the singles and doubles fields yesterday - the most of any team in the nation. Singh, Wagland, and Pasha were selected for singles while the Bulldogs' teams of Wagland/Pieters and Pasha/Brasseaux were chosen for doubles. The individual portion is set for May 22-27 at Illinois following the completion of the team tournament.

The Bulldogs are coming off a sweep of both the SEC regular season and tournament titles, doing so for the seventh time in school history.
