"We're certainly behind the 8-ball because of the goals we still have for this season," he said. "Honestly, I was rooting hard for Hopkins for no other reason than we had beaten Hopkins. Just from my team's standpoint, that was a very clear message. 'Fellas, we essentially dominated Johns Hopkins, who three weeks later, beat the No. 2 team in the country, and you can't tell me that so much is different in three weeks.' Jack McBride didn't play against Hopkins, so it was essentially the same team. This week is a big week. We've got two non-conference games and then we finish the last three weeks with the Ivies. We feel good about going into Saturday, and we'll take it from there."
