>> It's always tough to win on the road, especially in conference play. We made a lot of errors tonight and did not have a great hitting percentage for the match. If we keep our errors to a minimum, we give ourselves a better chance to pick up a win."
>> "We got some very solid performances from Brooke (Townsend) and Alex (Janak) and I'm proud of the way we battled tonight. It's time to regroup and hopefully snap this losing streak on Sunday at Georgia Southern.
