"Right now we're still trying to figure out how to play with each other in doubles and we're doing a much better job," head coach Alison Ojeda said. "We're putting ourselves in the position where we want to be and are failing to capitalize on those opportunities. But it's encouraging that we're in those positions.
"And in singles we just can't get over a flu-bug that has hit just about everyone on the team, including me this morning," Ojeda added.
The Blue Raiders host Tennessee Tech Sunday at 6 p.m. at the Racquet Club of Murfreesboro.
