GSU elected to participate in the Chapel Hill Regional with the 45th pick in the men’s Kick-Off Weekend Draft on Thursday afternoon. Two-seeded Georgia State, ranked No. 65 in the final ITA Division I team rankings, will take on three-seed (No. 66) Old Dominion in the opening round, with the winner taking on top-seed (No. 7) North Carolina or four-seed (No. 73) Elon in the regional final.

Despite the loss, GSU’s 17 wins were tied for the fifth-most team wins in a single season in program history.
