WVU coach Miha Lisac said despite the loss, there was some positives.

“We showed a couple of good things today,” Lisac said. “One of the most important things that we can take from this match is that if we are a little bit more comfortable in closing situations and if we have a little bit more belief then we will be right there.

“In doubles, we showed that we can definitely give ourselves an opportunity. Unfortunately, we couldn’t close the number three doubles out and that became a huge turning point.”
