Coach Gendron's Thoughts
"This is a great opportunity to play quality opponents close to home. We are excited to see what a solid week of practice will translate like on the court. It's an interesting format, pairing doubles teams and combing their singles points to determine who advances. It should be a great battle."
- In the first flight, redshirt junior Matt Kuhar (Smithfield, R.I.) and senior Luke Lorenz (Colorado Springs, Colo.) will face Boston College's Derek Austin and Chris Grasel. The duos will play doubles against one another, with Kuhar facing Austin and Lorenz taking on Grasel in singles.
- In the second flight, senior Jorge Ortiz-Garcia (Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico) and younger brother Jorge Isaias Ortiz-Garcia (Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico) will play doubles against Villanova's Stefan Suarez and Mike Czlonka. In singles, the older Ortiz-Garcia will face Suarez, while freshman Trent Massam (Wellington, New Zealand) will play Dylan Flanagan at No. 2 singles.
- Bryant will have two entries in the third flight. Redshirt senior Nick Lamart (Raleigh, N.C.) and freshman Wilson Dong (Bradenton, Fla.) will form the first duo, while sophomores Guido Argentini (Boca Raton, Fla.) and Andrew Quiros (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) form the other duo. Lamart and Dong will face BC's Will Turner and Jeffrey Melvin. Argentini and Quiros will face Boston University's David Bogatin and Pete Siozios.
