Found May 02, 2012 on Friarhood:

I'm not necessarily that will be the case this season, but they are on the right foot. They won last night in the first game of May, and hope to carry that over into tonight. Cory Luebke is missing his start tonight though, so we'll see how that goes. More on that below as well as other great articles.
