FORT WORTH - TCU's women's volleyball stumbled at No. 17 Kansas State, falling 3-0 (25-17, 25-16, 26-24) on Saturday afternoon inside K-State's Ahearn Field House.

The Horned Frogs slipped to 14-11 on the year and 3-9 in Big 12 action. The Wildcats improved to 21-5 and 8-5. TCU dropped both contests of the year to Kansas State after falling at home on Oct. 13.

Set one was all K-State as the Wildcats got out to a 5-2 lead and never looked back extending its lead to as many as 11 at one time. TCU closed to within eight at 23-15, but could never get any closer and dropped the opening frame, 25-17.

Yvonne Igodan led the Frogs with four kills on six swings in the set, while Sloane Sunstrum and Mattie Burleson had two each. Freshman Alexia Heist led the Frogs defensively with six digs.

The second set was back-and-forth in the early going, as the squads exchanged points and were tied at nine following a Stephanie Holland kill. KSU won the next 10 points of the match to break open the set and while a late 4-1 TCU run got the Frogs closer, K-State took a 2-0 lead into the break with a 25-16 set two win.

Igodan continued her strong play in the second set with four kills on six total attacks once again. Holland totaled three kills in the set and Munce assisted on 14 of TCU's 15 kills.

TCU came out on fire out of the break, forcing the Wildcats to take both of their timeouts with the Frogs leading 5-2 and 10-6. The Frogs were leading 13-10 when K-State responded with a 5-0 run to take the lead for the first time in the set.

Both teams put together 3-0 runs and were tied at 19 before TCU won five of the next eight points for a 24-22 lead. Holding three set points, TCU could not get over the hump and dropped a 26-24 set three decision and the match, 3-0.

The third set was all Igodan for the Frogs offensively once again, putting down five kills on six attacks with no errors for the third-straight set. Horio had five digs in the set to lead TCU defensively in the final frame.

Overall, Igodan hit a robust .722 for the match with 13 kills on 18 total swings. Holland had seven kills on 11 attacks. Horio had 13 digs as TCU out dug the Wildcats, 44-40. The Frogs also held a 5.0-3.0 edge in blocking against the taller K-State.

TCU returns to action Nov. 14 when Baylor visits the University Recreation Center. First serve is set for 5 p.m.
