BROWNING'S BULLETS: "Today we played a very good Maryland team. We had our chances at #1 and #3 singles by taking them to 3 sets in those spots. Maria and Melis at those spots played very well today but just came up a little short. At #2 we competed very well and at #4 we played very well to get the win there. At #5 and #6 we had chances as well. It's always good to play teams where you have to really take your level up a notch and that's what we did today. We'll have a good week of practice next week to get ready for Radford next Saturday."

LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials return home for a 2 p.m. match with Radford on Saturday, February 24 at the Southeast Tennis and Learning Center (STLC).
