#2 Wash U vs. #11 Bowdoin Match Preview

1. Cutler/Hoeland vs. Sullivan/White
2. Stein/Woods vs. Cranin/Neely
3. Choradia/Watts vs. Anderson/Caughron

1. John Watts vs. Steve Sullivan
2. Charlie Cutler vs. Oscar Pena
3. Max Woods vs. Alex White
4. Isaac Stein vs. Tyler Anderson
5. Danny Levy vs. Alex Caughron
6. Chris Hoeland vs. Josh Cranin

Given Bowdoin's results against Tyler the other day, you would have to pick Wash U to sweep doubles. The singles should be pretty evenly matched, but I have to give the edge to Wash U. They should take 1 and 2 singles to clinch the match. I would expect a split at the bottom four spots resulting in a 7-2 win for Wash U. If Bowdoin wants to stay in this match, they need to compete in doubles and they can't afford to even go down 2-1 against this good of a team. I'm not sure if Bowdoin has two doubles wins in them, but they will definitely need to bring their A game to even compete with the Bears.
