Tempe, Ariz. - The Yellow Jackets, ranked No. 27 by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, return to the court to host No. 1 Georgia on Tuesday, Feb. 13 at 4 p.m. Tuesday's match will be held indoors at the Bill Moore Tennis Center located on Georgia Tech's campus.

Georgia Tech trails in the all-time series with the Bulldogs, 26-60 including two losses last season, first in the regular season where the top-ranked Dogs won 6-1, then in the NCAA Regional Championships in Athens, Ga. where No. 30 Tech was defeated 4-0.

The Jackets will be playing in their first match since defeating Radford, 5-2, and Georgia Southern, 7-0, in their season-opening double header on Feb. 3. Jordan DeLass and George Gvelesiani beat both of their opponents in straight sets and, the Jackets won every doubles match to lift Tech to a 2-and-0 start.
