FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU swept Texas Tech, 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-15) Wednesday night in the first-ever Big 12 Conference match between the two schools in front of a standing-room only crowd at University Rec Center.

The loss was the fifth-straight for the Red Raiders (11-6; 0-2), who hit only .106 in the match as opposed to TCU's .327 attacking percentage. The Horned Frogs committed just 11 attacking errors total.

The Horned Frogs (13-2; 2-0) were the second-straight Tech opponent to hit over .300 against the Red Raiders after Kansas recorded a .371 average last Saturday.

Yvonne Igodan powered the TCU offense with 11 kills while Stephanie Holland dropped 10 as well. Megan Munce totaled 32 assists from the setter position to go with four kills and 13 digs that matched Meghan Horio for the team high.

The Red Raiders went back-and-forth with TCU in the opening frame before the Horned Frogs took control midway through the set. Tech only led twice after the start of the second set.

Miara Cave led Tech with eight kills while Emily Ehrle added seven of her own. It was only the second time this year where Tech did not have a player reach double digits.

Rachel Brummitt anchored the Tech back line with eight digs while Tory Vaughan and Cave added seven each as well. Emily Ruetter also recorded five digs to go along with her 24 assists.

The match marked the first between the two schools as Big 12 members in any sport after TCU joined the conference this past July.

The Red Raiders return to the United Spirit Arena this Saturday to face No. 9 Texas in a 2 p.m. match.
