"It was a good two days of matches for our guys that are coming back from injuries," said ODU Associate Head Coach Othmane Lalami. "This is exactly what we were looking for. Getting the rust off, improving from day one to day two and identifying what we need to keep getting better to be ready for regionals next week."
ODU will head now to Lynchburg starting on Thursday for the ITA Atlantic Regionals hosted by Liberty.
