The Lady Tigers are 10-11 (2-9 SEC) after dropping a 4-3 decision to Tennessee on Friday. After losing the doubles point and court one, LSU won three straight courts. Court two became the deciding match point. Noel Scott battled hard, but the junior but could not overcome Caitlyn Williams as Tennessee clinched the match.

The Bulldogs are 16-3 (9-1 SEC) on the season after defeating Arkansas 4-0 on Friday.

“Georgia probably couldn’t be more confident right now,” said LSU head coach Julia S. Sell. “They are experienced. They’ve got a lot of seniors on that team. We are going to have to play our best tennis to beat a team like that.”

Georgia leads the series 36-1 over LSU after the Bulldogs topped the Lady Tigers 7-0 on April 5, 2013.
