#8 Kenyon vs. #10 Gustavus Adolphus Match Preview

1. Greenberg/Vandenberg vs. Burdakin/Kauss
2. Brody/Stiles vs. Paukert/Tomasek
3. Piskacek/Polster vs. Hansen/Koppel

1. Mike Greenberg vs. John Kauss
2. Tomas Piskacek vs. Charlie Paukert
3. Jeremy Polster vs. Mike Burdakin
4. Will Vandenberg vs. Ben Tomasek
5. Daniel Becker vs. Patrick Clark
6. Josh Stiles vs. Ryan Hallsten

You have to think that Kenyon should have four easy wins before the match even starts. They should win at 2 singles as well as the 4 through 6 spots. The past results from Gustavus point to them not being able to stay with Kenyon in the bottom of the lineup. I think that Gustavus should be able to win at 3 as well as #1 doubles. I would also give them a slight edge at #2 doubles. The match should come down to #3 doubles and #1 singles and I have to give Kenyon both of those matches. Gustavus probably would need a doubles sweep to win this match. If Kenyon manages to steal #3 doubles which they should, they should be able to win 4 easy singles matches. I'm taking Kenyon in a 6-3 win.
