- The Broncos are undefeated on the road this season after opening the dual campaign on the road in Colorado (Jan. 25-26) where the Broncos defeated the Pac-12’s Colorado Buffaloes 4-3 in Boulder, Colo., followed by a 7-0 sweep at Northern Colorado in Greeley.

WHAT’S ON COACH ROGHAAR’S MIND
- “One of my favorite parts about our team this year is their eagerness and ability to learn. They are improving match to match and taking the experiences and lessons (great and tough) and making the necessary adjustments to continue to improve through the season.”
- “It’s just awesome to see how, as a group, they pick each other up, get behind each other, and go to work. It’s something very special about this group that makes them so much fun to be around.”
- “We are currently 4-2 on the year and are hungry to get back out competing. We are anxious to put all of the great things we learned from last week’s matchup against #50 Utah into play. We lost the match against Utah 5-2, but had put ourselves in some very good positions taking the first set in four of the five singles matches that went out on court following a hard fought doubles point.”
- “This week we have focused a lot on executing in certain situations and “finishing” once we get ahead in the race.”
