However, we        are looking forward to getting back into competition again. We are back from spring break        and we got a lot of playing and practice in that time. It's good to back and play again.        We've never played at Furman University before and will be the only Big Ten team there. It        is our intention to represent the Big Ten the best way we know how and that is to play to        win."
