On the bright side ... men's tennis.

Georgia's men's tennis team competed on its home courts at the Lindsey Hopkins Indoor Facility this weekend for a place in the ITA Men's Team Indoor Championship.  At this regional tournament, UGA was joined by Georgia Tech, UNC, and Oklahoma State.  The Dawgs opened the weekend Saturday against the Cowboys, while the Tarheels took on the Jackets.  While UNC edged Georgia Tech 4-3, Georgia handily dispatched Oklahoma State 4-0.

Sunday, Georgia took on North Carolina with a trip to the national championship on the line.  The Dawgs dropped the doubles point, but went on to take four straight singles points to win 4-1.  With the win, Georgia will travel to Seattle to compete in the National Championships, 17-21 February.  In case you don't follow tennis much, this is an indoor-specific tournament, and not the NCAA championship tournament, which will be held in Palo Alto in May.

In the meantime, 11th-ranked UGA resumes its team schedule, hosting USC upstate 2 February, travelling to #4 Ohio State 6 February, then returning to the Dan Magill Tennis Center in Athens to face #51 ETSU and #23 Georgia Tech on 9 and 12 February, respectively.

The 2010-2011 version of Georgia men's tennis doesn't have the lofty rankings and expectations that we've enjoyed in the recent past, but this team is demonstrating that one must never overlook the Bulldogs.  In addition to this week's matches, above, the schedule features trips to #38 Vanderbilt, #12 Kentucky, #18 Ole Miss, and home matches against #31 Auburn, #34 Bama, #45 LSU, #13 Louisville, #7 Florida, and #3 Tennessee.  The Volunteers are favored to win the SEC East, so this final match of the regular season should be a big one.
