Kansas Volleyball continued its winning ways Saturday afternoon in the friendly confines of the Horejsi Athletic Center, pummeling Texas Tech in three sets, 25-8, 25-18, 25-18.

The entire match lasted just over one hour.

Kansas finished the first set off with 13 points in a row, including six aces from Madison Rigdon, and then won the first two points of the second set.

KU finished the match with 10 total aces, but also gave up 10 service errors.

Kelsie Payne led the way offensively with 12 kills while adding 3 blocks. Cassie Wait held down the fort defensively, collecting 12 digs.

The Jayhawks were coming off a 3-1 win at Iowa State earlier in the week.

Observations

We saw great Kansas in the first set today, and good Kansas most of the rest of the match. However, average to bad Kansas probably takes care of Texas Tech.

Again, double-digit service errors. This is going to worry me going into postseason play.

Up Next

The Jayhawks (15-2, 4-1) will host K-State (14-4, 3-2) on Wednesday night, Oct. 12, on another nationally televised match, this time on ESPNU. The Wildcats have had an up-and-down season, knocking off a couple of ranked opponents early, being ranked as high as #23, and pushing Texas to five sets back on Oct 1.

Following the match against KSU, the Jayhawks will travel to Fort Worth to take on TCU on Saturday, Oct. 15.
