Kansas volleyball was able to gain its second Big 12 victory of the season with a 3-0 win (25-18, 25-21, 25-19) over TCU inside Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena.

Led by redshirt-senior Ashley Smith, the Jayhawks were able to take set one with a score of 25-18. Both teams we knotted up at 10-10 before the Jayhawks would go on a 15-8 run to claim the set. Smith led the team with five kills in set one.

The second set turned into a back-and-forth fight between the Jayhawks and the Horned Frogs. The Jayhawks (6-10, 2-4 Big 12) found themselves up 22-21 before two attack errors by the Horned Frogs, and a kill by sophomore Rachel Langs gave KU the 25-21 set victory. Freshman Morgan Christon finished with a team-high five kills in the set.

Kansas earned the three-set sweep of TCU with a dominant effort in the final set. The Jayhawks led by as many as 6 points in an eventual 25-19 win in the third set. Smith and Christon both finished with a team-high 12 kills.

KU travels to Kansas State at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
