Athens, Ga. – South Carolina’s men’s tennis team continued play at its final fall tournament on Saturday, with senior Geraldo Knorr picking up USC’s only win on day two of the Bulldog Scramble in Athens, Ga.

Knorr defeated Kentucky freshman Bruno Agonstinelli in a tough three-set match, 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(4). The other Carolina players in action on Saturday were all defeated, with senior Kazuya Otani falling 6-2, 6-3 to Georgia’s Brad Benedict and redshirt freshman Thomas Stoddard losing 6-4, 6-3 to UK’s Kenny Hodge.

In doubles play, Knorr and Stoddard went down a break to the Wildcats’ Shane Collins and Marcus Sundh, but could not recover and were defeated 8-6. Otani and sophomore Joe Veeder also found themselves on the losing side of their doubles match, dropping an 8-1 decision to Hodge and Carey Rubin of Kentucky.

Matches will resume Sunday morning at the Dan Magill Tennis Center on UGA’s campus, with singles set to begin at 9 a.m.

The Bulldog Scramble, an annual tournament for Southeastern Conference teams, is played in a round robin format. All the participating schools get a chance to see each other in action and no player is eliminated from the field. Joining the Gamecocks in Athens this weekend are the Wildcats, host Georgia and defending SEC co-champions Ole Miss and Florida.
