FORT WORTH - TCU's women's volleyball team fell in three sets (25-18, 25-14, 25-17) to No. 22 Kansas on Saturday afternoon in front of 1,412 fans inside the TCU University Recreation Center.

The Horned Frogs slipped to 14-13 on the year and 3-11 in the Big 12 as it closed the season series with Kansas. The Jayhawks improved to 23-6 and 11-4 in the league.

KU took an early lead in the first set and was able to take control with a 9-3 run after the set was tied at four. TCU scored five of the last seven points in the set, but it was not enough as KU claimed set one, 25-18.

Stephanie Holland was TCU's primary offensive weapon in the first set, tallying six kills with just one error on 10 total attacks. Sutton Sunstrum, who played libero for just the second time this season, had six digs.

TCU got its first lead of the match in the early goings of the second set and led 8-5 before a 10-2 Jayhawk run flipped the set in favor of the road team. The Frogs were unable to cut into the lead as KU took a 2-0 lead into the break with a 25-14 set two win.

Holland added to her total with three kills in the second set, while Mattie Burleson had three on six attacks in her first extended action since last week's match against Kansas State. Alexia Heist, who earned the start at setter, had five assists.

The Frogs were unable to wrestle the lead away from the 22nd-ranked Jayhawks in set three, as they led the whole way on the way to a 25-17 set three win. Sloane Sunstrum and Macy Capen had three kills each in the set.

Overall, TCU made it to the 30-kill mark for the 27th time in 27 matches this season. Holland led the Frogs with nine kills, while Sutton Sunstrum collected 11 digs. All four of TCU's freshmen were in the starting lineup at the same time for the first time this season.

TCU returns to action Wednesday when it travels to Oklahoma. First serve is set for 7 p.m., in Norman.
