The University of Kentucky Wildcats made off with a 3-0 record this past weekend at the OSU Round Robin, only allowing 1 point against them and thoroughly destroying the competition. Down a few of their varsity players, UK still had the strength to knock off some of the best teams in the league. Wes Hopkins in particular was a force for the Wildcats, who beat MSU 4-0 in their first game, and then followed it up by beating OSU 3-0 and Kent State 3-1.
Michigan State went 3-1 on the day despite bringing 7 rookies playing their first ever matches and being down 6 potential varsity players. The Spartans defeated rival SVSU 5-0, Kent State 3-0, and OSU 4-1. Led by great team unity and by playing clutch for the first time in school history, MSU made their way up to being #2 in the country.
SVSU and Kent State played a terrific first match of the day that went to overtime, the first OT game under the new rules. Despite SVSU getting two team catches in 10 seconds, Kent State won on a controversial catch. SVSU was able to knock off host school OSU to pick up 3 points on the weekend. Kent State figures to be one of the top teams at the end of the season based on points, and they picked up 4 after beating SVSU and rival OSU. The host school Ohio State did not have a great performance, going 0-4.
SVSU v UK – Canceled due to court time restrictions.
