The first day of play left Milwaukee head coach Sean McInerney eager to see his team continue its improvement as it looks toward the spring campaign.
"I think today showed us that we have a lot of work to do to be a consistently good program," McInerney said. "I was really impressed by how hard Bradley played and I hope that we learn a lesson from them. We really need to improve on our point structure and maintaining a level of energy throughout an entire match. I am looking forward to getting back on the courts tomorrow and improving."
