Technical Tidbits 1/20: Men’s And Women’s Tennis Team Both Victorious

New, 1 comment

Tennis teams fared well this weekend.

Tennis: Hall of Fame ITA Invitational Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

The season continues to go well for the Yellow Jackets women’s tennis team. They defeated both Furman and Presbyterian on Saturday to improve to 4-0 on the season. They’ll be back on the courts tomorrow to host Mercer for a doubleheader at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex. Good luck to them as they aim to continue their perfect season.

The Yellow Jackets men’s tennis team also had success this past weekend. On Sunday they swept the top twenty ranked Columbia team in a doubles match that was part of the MLK Invitational. The tournament ends tomorrow as the Yellow Jackets will face off against No. 16 South Carolina.

It was a disappointing weekend for the Yellow Jackets men’s basketball team. They fell to the defending national champion Virginia Cavaliers. It’s worth noting that they did make a valiant effort to comeback, getting as close as two in the second half, as the article points out. But with all those turnovers (many unforced), you really have to wonder about this team. As mentioned in the article, they are a lot better than their 8-10 overall record would have one assume. It’s disappointing that they have dropped so many of their home ACC games; you’d hope that the home-court advantage would work to their favor. The Yellow Jackets will be playing their next ACC game against Louisville, and, if it provides any solace, it will be a road game.

Here’s an article that provides a breakdown of just what the Yellow Jackets men’s basketball team will have to do in their next game against Louisville. While the Cardinals do have a tough defense, the article does point out that they do force the fewest turnovers in the ACC. That’s got to help some, hopefully.

Georgia Tech’s swimming and diving team had an impressive showing on the road against South Carolina. The Yellow Jackets and Gamecocks ended up splitting. The meet was part of an SEC - ACC crossover.
