ATHENS, Ga. - No. 2 Georgia (23-4) captured the doubles point and won the first three completed singles matches to topple Binghamton men’s tennis (16-10) Friday afternoon at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The loss ends BU’s championship season, which included the program’s sixth consecutive America East title and ninth NCAA berth in the last 11 years.

The host Bulldogs, reigning SEC champions, were making their 35th overall appearance in the NCAA tournament and 30th straight. Georgia reached the NCAA quarterfinals in 2012, and has reached the finals in three of the last seven seasons.
