TEXAS TECH TEAM NOTES
The match was only the second all-time between the two schools as San Jose State had won the previous meeting with a 3-1 victory on Sept. 2, 1988 during the Utah Tournament.
The loss snapped Texas Tech's 14-match winning streak against non-conference opponents, the school's longest such run since winning 22-straight during the 1996-97 seasons.
Tech was previously 1-0 against WAC opponents this year as the Red Raiders defeated Louisiana Tech, 3-0, on Sept. 10.
The Red Raiders dropped to 2-3 on the year when going five sets. Tech has lost three of its last four contests that have gone five as well.
Tech fell to 14-3 this year when leading its opponent in hitting percentage. The Red Raiders totaled a .235 hitting percentage in the match as opposed to San Jose State's .192 average.
The Red Raiders dropped only their second match of the season when hitting .200 or above. Tech's other loss came Oct. 15 in a 3-1 loss at Missouri where the Red Raiders finished with a .213 hitting percentage.
The Missouri match also marks the last time Tech hit at least .200 in a match as the Red Raiders had been held under that mark during their last seven outings.
Tech totaled 12 service errors in the match, its most since also finishing with 12 at New Mexico on Sept. 26. The Red Raiders' season high is 13 service errors on Aug. 27 against Grambling State.
The loss prevented Tech from guaranteeing its first .500 season since 2001 as the Red Raiders are still one win shy at 15-14 overall.
