Jon Lewicki went down with a sprained ankle vs. Marquette and did not return the rest of the weekend.
Quote from Coach Schreiber:
"This is not what we hoped for, but not because we did not play well. And, we lost to a great team. We flirted with danger for most of the weekend, but showed amazing resilience to hang on. Injury forced a line-up shuffle so we adjusted and pushed through. It was disappointing serving became the big factor in the finals because we had played so complete till that point. Next week should be fun."
