Baylor hits the road for the second-straight match as the Bears face off against Texas Tech on Saturday night at 7 p.m. at the United Spirit Arena. This marks the third road contest in Baylor's last four matches, as the Bears have put together a three-match winning streak.
The Bears are coming off a 3-0 win against TCU on Wednesday, their third straight win. Baylor won three straight matches earlier this season as the Bears swept through the three matches of the SMU/Radisson Invitational. A win against Texas Tech would give Baylor a four-match winning streak, the longest this season, and the longest winning streak since the Bears won 11-straight matches in 2006.
Baylor was led by Anna Breyfogle, who tallied 15 kills on .625 hitting against TCU. The hitting percentage tied as the highest for a Baylor player this season, as Ashlie Christenson also recorded a .625 hitting percentage in the first match-up with Texas Tech.
Taylor Barnes connected on eight kills with no hitting errors, and added 41 set assists and two service aces. Katie Sanders notched her 15th double-double of the season with 12 kills and 12 digs, while Christenson contributed 10 kills and added three service aces and four total blocks (two solo).
Baylor defeated Texas Tech 3-1 on Oct. 3 as the Bears hit a season-high .383 against the Red Raiders. Sanders and Christenson recorded career-highs with 25 and 16 kills, respectively. Baylor only committed 15 hitting errors in the match, and did not commit an unforced error over the last two games as the only hitting miscues were a result of four Red Raider blocks.
Texas Tech enters the match on an 11-match losing streak, including 3-0 losses in its last five contests. The Red Raiders opened conference play with a 3-2 win over Colorado, their only Big 12 win of the season.
The Red Raiders are led by Michelle Flores with 241 kills and 3.05 kills per game. Emily Zeigler is hitting at a .356 clip, while Jenn Harrell has recorded 3.96 digs per game. Brandi Hood leads Texas Tech at 0.96 blocks per game.
