Coach Scolamieri's preview on the final non-conference match of the fall season:

"The Lafayette match will be another  struggle for us. Some different guys than previously will play singles and doubles for us so I will get a clearer idea of who can play better in a  match than he does at practice when we are playing each other. The result is not  the most important outcome of that match."
