No. 26 Hogs Fall to No. 19 Georgia
ATHENS, Ga. – Arkansas jumped back into SEC play on Wednesday, continuing a match that was postponed due to rain on March 14. Just as quickly as the tennis Hogs jumped back into league play, they lost the match, 4-0.

Resuming the match from the previous scores at the time of postponement, the Hogs never even played a doubles match. Georgia’s first win of the day came when Will Glen defeated Hunter Benson at the No. 6 spot, 6-2, 6-0. No. 39 Nicolas Boeker quickly followed as he downed Eduardo Pacheco at No. 2, 6-4, 6-2. On court five, Strahinja Bobusic knocked off Matt Roberts 6-3, 6-2 and then Bo Hodge, ranked third in the nation, had his troubles with Bubis in the first, but still picked up the victory, 7-6(2), 6-2.

With the loss, Arkansas falls to 11-8 on the year, 2-5 in league play and 7-8 versus ranked teams. Arkansas will quickly pick up the action again when they host the Kentucky Wildcats on Friday at 1 p.m. at the University of Arkansas Outdoor Tennis Complex.
