ATHENS-----The Georgia men’s tennis team will play at least 12 NCAA Tournament teams from last season, including home matches against perennial powers USC and UCLA, as the Bulldogs’ 2014-15 schedule was announced Friday.

“We are really excited for our guys to have a chance to kind of spread their wings and face some of the top teams in the country this year,” said head coach Manuel Diaz. “The SEC is again one of the elite conferences in the country, so our team will be challenged to be at their very best each and every time we play. Our strength of schedule will be a great opportunity for our players to grow as a team and as individuals.” 

Georgia will play seven tournaments in the fall and winter before dual matches begin. The season opens with the Southern Intercollegiate Championships Sept. 12-15 in Athens. Other tournaments include the Cajun Classic (Sept. 18-21), All-American Championships (Sept. 27-Oct. 5), ITA Southeast Regional in Athens (Oct. 16-19), National Indoor Championships (Nov. 6-9), Bulldog Scramble in Athens (Nov. 7-9) and the MLK Invitational at Georgia Tech (Jan. 17-19).

The dual match season begins with the ITA Kickoff vs. Michigan State in Athens on Jan. 23. The Bulldogs will face either Elon or Utah on Jan. 24 with the winner of the two-day tournament advancing to the ITA Team Indoor Championships Feb. 13-16 in Chicago.  

Georgia will play host to UCLA (Jan. 31) and USC (Feb. 1) in the SEC-Pac-12 Showdown at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex, and other non-conference matches include a trip to Georgia Tech (Feb. 6) and East Tennessee State in Athens on March 19.

The Bulldogs’ SEC schedule includes home matches against Texas A&M (March 6), LSU (March 8), South Carolina (March 22), Vanderbilt (March 27), Arkansas (April 9) and Ole Miss (April 11). The road conference slate includes matches at Florida (Feb. 26), Auburn (Feb. 28), Tennessee (March 12), Kentucky (March 14), Mississippi State (April 3) and Alabama (April 5). 

Texas A&M will play host to the SEC Tournament April 17-19, and the NCAA First & Second Rounds are scheduled for May 8-10 on 16 campus sites. The NCAA Championships will be held at Baylor University in Waco, Texas, May 14-25. 

Georgia returns six players from last year’s SEC championship team, including All-Americans Nathan Pasha and Ben Wagland and All-SEC performer Austin Smith.
