"We had some unexpected prematch adversity today, but the guys really stepped up and showed some serious mental fortitude,” assistant coach David Heckler said. “Doubles didn't go as well as we hoped, but the guys didn't let their heads hang for even a second. Montana State was a tough opponent and a good win for us.”
