FORT WORTH, Texas - The TCU volleyball team wrapped-up home matches for the regular season on Saturday night as they dropped a 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-14) decision to No. 23 Iowa State at The Rickel inside the University Recreation Center.

The Horned Frogs (11-16, 3-12 Big 12) battled every set with the ranked Cyclones (20-6, 10-5 Big 12), but strong serving and runs in each set proved to be too much as Iowa State was able to take the match in straight sets.

Lexi MacLean led the team with her second double-double of the season with 12 kills and 10 digs in the match. Abigail Buckingham was able to chip in six kills, while Sarah Langs was good for five kills. Lamprini Konstantinidou, Kaylee Smith and Tori Dilfer guided the offense with 14, seven and four assists, respectively. Dani Dennison paced the defense with a match-best 15 digs and Sarah Swanson led the team at the net with 2.0 blocks.

TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer
Opening Statement
"No. 1, once again I would like to thanks to our fans. Again we had over 1,800 people packed in our gym and here to support us against Iowa State and support our seniors tonight. We have three seniors, Lamprini (Konstantinidou), Kaylee (Smith) and Kayla (Scheevel) - and they all contributed this evening and have all had great careers here and been a huge part of our program. I want to say thank you to them.

"We were in a different lineup again tonight and I think our team did a good job of working through that and being in some different situations and making the best out of it. Lexi (MacLean) had a great night tonight on the outside for us and it was probably her best performance to date and that says a lot about her and kind of the situation we were in and I thought it was good stuff from her."
