Kansas' Tiana Dockery (7) and Anna Church (1) watch as junior Maggie Anderson (19) keeps the ball in play during Kansas' second round NCAA volleyball tournament match against Missouri on Friday night at the Horejsi Center. The Jayhawks sent the Tigers packing with a three set sweep.
It was only a few years ago that Maggie Bowen was in a Kansas volleyball uniform, helping the Jayhawks make their best NCAA Tournament run in program history.
