KU volleyball cruises past Texas Tech


— Behind dominant offensive performances from juniors Madison Rigdon and Kelsie Payne, the sixth-ranked Kansas volleyball team swept Texas Tech, 25-15, 25-16, 25-20, on Wednesday at United Supermarkets Arena.

Rigdon and Payne combined for 33 kills and only two errors, leading the Jayhawks (19-2, 8-1 in Big 12) to a .343 hit percentage. Payne completed her sixth double-double with 10 digs while Rigdon added three service aces and three blocks.

Junior setter Ainise Havili, who sat out a few points in KU's last match after colliding with a teammate, had 39 assists.

Defensively, the Jayhawks held the Red Raiders (10-14, 0-9) to a .064 hit percentage. Senior libero Cassie Wait recorded a team-best 23 digs.

Kansas will face No. 2 Texas at 6:30 p.m. Saturday at Horejsi Family Athletics Center.

I'm really enjoying listening to the broadcasts of the games It bugs me that I've forgotten the name of the play-by-play man. He's excellent. Come to think of it, but I don't believe he ever mentions his name.

Got a huge one coming up Saturday. Keep up the great effort, ladies. Win or lose, however, the main thing is to keep getting better each day!

"Texas own a 25-match winning streak against KU". The Lady Jayhawks will end this streak on Saturday in front of their home crowd! Hard decision, watch the volleyball team win against Texas or watch Oklahoma likely run up the score against our football team. Hopefully it will be an exciting weekend for all of the KU sports teams.
