"First of all, Nicholls State is a very good tennis program. They are probably very underated because of the conference they play in but they have a strong line up from top to bottom. Their doubles was certainly a surprise coming out of the gate," said Coach Andrew Harris. "I didnt do a good enough job relaying the message to our men about how strong thier doubles play was and it showed. In singles we were leading in three of the matches however were not able to capitalize on two of those matches. James Murrell did a great job finishing his match out and this will certainly be a good confidence builder for him going into our next match."
