    Horns take down BU 3-0. That first set was a mishap waiting to happen. Both wire lots of service errors. Thankfully, BU had a few more than Texas and Horns pulled it out 25-23. The other two sets were not that close.
    Love that we got so many weapons all along the line. Just realized that I don't recall Yaasmeen at all. Maybe that's why we saw a lot of Katarina. Still have at least two frosh, mostly three frosh on the floor at all times.

    Once we got past the first set, the remainder of the game was total annihilation. Pressley is the only dangerous weapon Baylor has, and she is very dangerous, but not enough to overcome our total team talent.

    I thought Gaylor was a little overrated. The only real team they've beat is Wiscy and I watched a bit of that. Wiscy looked like they just finished a 72 hr drinking binge. It wasn't the same Wiscy Texas played.
    They just got beat by Tceh, lost to UTRGV and needed 5 to beat UTSA. Top 25 teams just don't do that.

    Texas goes to 3-0 in Big 12 play as they mow down WVU in straight sets, 25-18, 25-15 & 25-19.:hookem2:
    Micaya's 14 kills gives her 149 kills for the season and 982 for her career. She is about to hit 1,000 career kills soon. She has a chance to reach the school's top ten in career kills by the end of this season. Dawn Davenport (1,310) and Janine Gremmel (1,306) are currently ninth and tenth, respectively, on that list.

    Micaya (14 kills) and Brionne (10 kills) were the only Horns to reach double digit kills. Logan (9 kills), Katarina (6 kills) and Morgan (5 kills) rounded out a pretty balanced scoring set of players for Texas. Ashley had two kills and 35 assists while Sydney had 13 digs and 3 assists. As a team, Horns had six service aces with Brionne and Ashley each with two.

    I noticed that Micaya has changed her service for, I believe the third time this season. She served without jumping at all, just taking a step forward while still pretty far back from the end line. Almost all of her serves were playable with only one going out of bounds and I didn't see any hit into the net. Not as hard a serve but much better accuracy in putting it into play.

    Congrats to Micaya on reaching the 1000 kills threshold and to Texas for winning a very tough 5 set game versus TCU in Fort Worth. And I really don't care that she scored a thousand kills under different rules than others. That will continue to happen all the time with continuing rule changes. Reaching a 1000 kills in less than three full seasons is a tremendous accomplishment. :bow:

    Texas hosts Kansas tonight at 8 PM. Game will be televised on FSSW and Fox Sports Plus.
    No. 4 Volleyball preview: at Kansas (RV) - Texas Athletics

    This is a big game for the undisputed lead of the Big 12. Texas is currently #1 at 5-0 while Kansas is at 4-0. No other team is undefeated. Tech sits at third in the league at 4-1 going into this week's games.

    That setting last night was a mess.
    What's going on in Texas's practice's.
    There need's to be a change somewhere.

    Horns dropped their first league game in the last 25 league games (2016-17 season).
    Very poor first set. You name it, Texas whiffed on it: defense, offense, blocks (lack there of), energy. Better in the second set but still looking bad. Came back strong in the third to win that set. Fourth was disappointing as Horns came out fast, building a large lead but that slowly was erased as Kansas ended up winning by two, 25-23. Disappointing loss because of the way they played the first two sets but first loss since 2016-17. Had to happen sometime. Time for Horns to regroup and start another winning streak. This does play a bit of havoc with efforts to finish in top four for playoffs. It will depend on how others in front do now.

    Horns pulled out a win over OU in five sets, 3-2.
    This win kept the Horns (6-1) in second place in the Big 12 behind Kansas (6-0).

    Next game for Texas is next Saturday at 1 PM vs Tech in Gregory. The game will be on the LHN.

    Big 12 has three teams in the top 25. Horns slide to #8 with loss to KU.
