I am proud of the way the team enjoys one another and really pushes each other to get better. I am also pleased with the development of the players and how much they have grown as people and tennis players.
The loss against Illinois was one of the most incredible atmospheres for college tennis. I think that's something we can have here [today]. It's an opportunity for the community to get out and support us against one of the top teams in the country.
I would say that Notre Dame is a top-10, top-15 team. It's a strong club and they're only going to get better. VCU is another underrated club. They're as good as anybody we've played this year. We had an absolutely grueling match with them.
