Coach Harris said, "Tonight was an excellent showing of the strides we have made in doubles. All three doubles teams played with the intensity and discipline needed to win consistently at this level. Unfortunately some of the bounces didnt go our way and we came up on the short end of the stick."

"Going into singles we knew we had a great opportunity to win however coming off the tough loss in doubles proved to be a lot to overcome. The guys are getting better and continually are putting forth the effort needed to overcome more close matches down the road in the season."

The Bisons will travel to Fort Wayne, Indiana to play IPFW on February 22nd. Their next home match will be versus USC-Upstate on March 7th here in Nashville.
