FORT WORTH – TCU’s women’s volleyball team dropped a 3-0 (25-20, 25-20, 25-23) decision to Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon in front of 965 fans inside the TCU University Recreation Center.

The Horned Frogs fell to 13-5 on the season and 2-3 in the Big 12. The Sooners, who would be ranked 26th if the poll went that far, improved to 14-5 and 3-1.

TCU fell behind early in set one and was never able to recover, falling 25-20 in the opening frame. The Frogs staged a late run on sophomore Mattie Burleson’s with a heavy dose of Yvonne Igodan offense from her middle blocker position.

Igodan had five kills on nine attacks in the set, while Stephanie Holland added four kills of her own as TCU held the edge in kills, 16-13. Sloane Sunstrum had seven digs and Meghan Horio added six.

The Frogs were unable to take advantage of the momentum from the end of the first set as OU extended its lead to 2-0 with a 25-20 set two win. Sunstrum was the leader for the Frogs on offense, posting three kills. Horio did the defensive work for TCU in set two, picking up 10 digs.

Out of the intermission before set three, TCU came out to grab an early lead in the set that featured four lead changes and the score being tied on 11 occasions. Both teams hit at better than .300 in the set with OU holding a .367-.326 edge.

Igodan had five kills, Sunstrum and Holland added four each, but it was not enough to hold on the late-surging Sooners, who claimed a 25-23 set three win and 3-0 triumph in the match. Megan Munce had 16 assists in the deciding set.

Overall, Igodan had 11 kills, Holland had 10, while Sunstrum added eight and 13 digs Munce had five kills, five digs and 39 assists. Horio led the Frogs defensively with 19 digs. TCU held a 49-41 edge in total kills, but OU had the advantage in aces (5-1) and blocks (11.0-6.0).

TCU returns to action Oct. 13 when Kansas State visits the TCU University Rec Center. First serve is set for 1 p.m., against the 14th-ranked Wildcats.
