Oct. 14, 2017

Final Stats

LUBBOCK, Texas - The TCU volleyball team battled hard but came up just short on Saturday afternoon as Texas Tech came away with a 3-1 (25-21, 23-25, 25-19, 25-21) victory inside the United Supermarkets Arena.

The Horned Frogs (9-9, 1-5 Big 12) controlled the match from the beginning and held the early lead in the opening set but a late 8-0 run by the Red Raiders (13-6, 2-4 Big 12) let them steal the set and take a 1-0 lead in the match. TCU bounced back to take the second set behind seven kills from Anna Walsh, but the Frogs could not carry the momentum any further with Texas Tech using early runs to control the final two sets to get the win in the match in four.

Walsh led TCU for an eighth time this season with a season-high 18 kills in the match to go along with 7.0 blocks and two digs. Allye Beth Deaton notched her third straight double-double with a career-high 16 kills and 12 digs. Dani Dennison anchored the defense from the back row with 19 digs while TCU totaled 10.0 blocks as a team at the net defensively.

Quotes of the Match
TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer
Opening Statement
"We needed to be better on both sides of the ball today. I thought we came out really well and I think our team prepared well. We did not compete hard when it counted the most though just throughout the match. That is on us as a staff. We have to get them to compete for the whole match and we set ourselves up for some really great things and some really great moments. We had a couple of really good performances from a few players but that is not going to get it done. You have to have everybody. We have to get back in the gym and get better and prep for Oklahoma."
