"Our match with Davidson today was a similar story as yesterday at Charlotte. Mihaela and Tiara won in doubles and played very well in singles. Our depth issues caught up with us again, facing last year's A-10 finalist. But improvements are beginning to start to show. We have two weeks to continue to improve."
