FORT WORTH — The Baylor volleyball team showed an economical approach to their swings in taking down TCU, 25-22, 25-17, 25-23, on Saturday.
The win was the seventh straight for the Bears (12-3 overall, 2-0 in Big 12), who hit at a .306 clip for the match and had three players top .400 in hitting percentage.
Baylor coach Ryan McGuyre also praised his team’s defensive effort, which produced seven blocks and 48 digs, compared to five and 41 for TCU (8-5, 0-2).
“I think we were ready,” McGuyre said. “Our defense was the difference. (Jana Brusek) was getting great touches, aggressive moves versus passive.”
Katie Staiger led Baylor with 17 kills while hitting .412, while Shelly Fanning added 10 kills and Camryn Freiberg and Yossiana Pressley had eight each. Anna Walsh popped 12 kills to pace the Frogs.
Next up for Baylor is a duel with sixth-ranked Texas in Austin on Wednesday.
