Coach Kristin Lusk commented, "We played UT Martin better in every singles match than we did this fall. It definitely shows improvement on our part and the girls competed well," she said.

Possibly the highlight of the night were the three tiebreaker matches in the singles area.

"We had three matches that went into third set tiebreakers and we lost all three - that just happens sometimes in tennis. We had our chances in every match, but UT Martin played really tough. I think the girls can take a lot of good things away from this match as we head to Western Kentucky this Friday."

The Lady Bisons will travel to Western Kentucky this Friday, February 15th.
