Coach Billy Pate on the match:
"It was a gutsy win today as we had to rally after digging ourselves a hole. To be perfectly candid, we were atrocious in doubles and that's the first time we haven't come out with the type of energy and attitude we expect. We challenged them after that and we're very pleased to see how the guys responded. It was a tremendous effort for our three freshmen (Day, Colautti, Yablon) and senior co-captain (Davies) to claim the four singles points we needed. We have another tough match with Purdue tomorrow and will need to recover tonight to play our best tennis."
