QUOTING COACH McROBERTS
“At this point, we’re pleased that we’re the only SEC team that’s undefeated. We know that we have a long way to go, and we know the schedule gets tougher from here on out. We’re glad that we have our next seven matches at home. We expect this to be another competitive tournament. We’re glad we’re finally home.”
