Last time out...
Boise State (1-2 overall, 0-0 Western Athletic Conference) got its' first big test of the 2010 indoor season last weekend with duals against two top-30 opponents at the ITA Kick-Off in Champaign, Ill. The Broncos opened the weekend off with a 5-1 loss against No. 26 Washington. Boise State tried to regroup on Sunday against No. 27 Virginia Tech, but fell short in a late comeback with a 4-3 loss to the Hokies.
The Broncos fell behind in both duals after losing the doubles point against each opponent. Boise State has yet to win the doubles point in three matches this season.
Looking at the Aggies...
Utah State (2-3 overall, 0-0 WAC) has experienced its' share of ups and downs early on in the indoor season with a pair of wins against Big Sky Conference teams, and a pair of shutout losses against Mountain West Conference opponents.
The Aggies earned wins against Idaho State, 5-2, and North Arizona, 5-2. USU's three losses came at the hands of BYU, 7-0, Utah, 4-3 and UNLV, 7-0. One thing working in favor of the Aggies is the fact that they do have experience on their roster, with six of 11 players being upperclassmen.
Looking at the Wildcats...
Weber State has struggled to get going so far this season, falling to a 0-3 start to begin the year (0-0 Big Sky). The Wildcats three losses came against BYU (7-0), Sacramento State (7-0) and Oregon (3-4). WSU faced the Ducks in Boise on Jan. 20, one day before Boise State beat Oregon 4-3 at home.
The Wildcats do have a roster that is loaded with seasons (four of seven players), which should helped WSU as it tries to bounce back from its' early season woes.
