No. 1 Texas defeats Mountaineers

MORGANTOWN – The West Virginia University volleyball team fell to No. 1 Texas 3-0 (15-25, 20-25, 29-31) on Wednesday night at the WVU Coliseum in front of the second-largest crowd ever to take in a WVU volleyball match.

“I think our team showed a lot of resiliency tonight,” says coach Jill Kramer. “We got off to a little bit of a slow start. Texas didn’t have an attack error in the first set, so we really had to earn everything.”

A crowd of 1,812 took in the Big 12 Conference match.

The Longhorns (14-2, 7-0 Big 12) extended their win streak to 10 consecutive matches, while the Mountaineers (16-6, 2-5 Big 12) have now dropped four of their last five.

WVU freshman outside hitter Jordan Anderson led all players with 16 kills.
