Texas A&M Head Coach Steve Denton
"I thought it was an exciting match. It was intense and exciting. Jeff Dadamo hits an ace on a second serve when he was down match point for us to come back and win the doubles point. We thought that would propel us in the singles, but give Stanford a lot of credit. I thought that their top three guys played exceptional tonight. They were just a little better than us in those spots. We could never really get our nose in front and as a result they were able to win those matches. You got to give them a lot of credit and I tip my hat to them because they played very well." li
Stanford Head Coach John Whitlinger
"I really liked the way these guys played. Especially at 1, 2 and 3... They get to come out here again and play on Saturday in front of their home crowd."
(on facing Virginia) "They are an incredible team. Very solid. And we are going to give it our best shot."
