Quote from Coach Schreiber:
"This event is as competitive as the National Tournament so there is no shame in where we finished, but we let some matches slip away where we could have won. Both the Dayton and Ohio State matches we held leads and momentum only to let them get away. Indiana is a great team and we did come out of the gates ready to play that caliber of volleyball to open up. Our serve receive fell apart against Oshkosh and our day was done. There is so much parity this year that we still have as good a chance as anyone the next two weeks."
