The Gamecocks are off to a great start this season, entering conference play with a 10-1 record including upsets of ACC foes Georgia Tech and Wake Forest at the beginning of February. 

The SEC is one of the toughest tennis leagues in the country, setting up a very challenging schedule gauntlet. On the men's side, all 12 current league teams are ranked in the Top 50 with eight of those squads in the Top 25, including the Gamecocks who rose to #22 this week. Georgia is currently the highest ranked of the all the SEC squads at #6. Carolina will follow Friday's match with Georgia going up against #19 Tennessee on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
