A trio of KU players finished with double-digit kills on Thursday. Anezka Szabo led the way with 15 kills for Kansas. Jenny Mosser recorded her second-consecutive double-double with 11 kills and 15 digs, while Ayah Elnady tallied 10 kills with a team-leading four aces.

Elise McGhie finished with 40 assists, while Kennedy Farris recorded 22 digs. As a team, the Jayhawks have won four consecutive matches while posting a 12-3 advantage in sets over that stretch.

Kansas will host Wichita State at 4 p.m. Saturday in the Horejsi Family Volleyball Arena.
