The Tigers pounded a weak Southampton (0-10, 0-4) team Friday, coasting to a three-game win ? 15-5, 15-8, 15-11 ? and rallied from Saturday's loss to beat Springfield College (7-5, 4-3) by scores of 15-4, 15-7, 15-9, Monday.The second game in the match against Southampton opened with several lineup changes on the Princeton side of the net, including a rare substitution for senior setter and captain Jason Morrow."They're not as strong as they've been in the past," head coach Glenn Nelson said.
