Jon Lewicki was lost for the weekend to a sprained ankle in the opening match.
Quote from Coach Schreiber:
"What a great weekend our guys put together to lose only 2 matches by a combined 4 points and put us in the championship match. The finals were one of the best matches I've ever been a part of. I wish we could have had fresh legs for that, but our lower seed coming into Sunday meant we had to play 2 more matches than Marquette did. We keep getting stronger and I don't think we've peaked yet. Hopefully we reach that peak over the final 2 weeks of the season."
