Texas Tech Completes Season Sweep of WVU With 3-1 Victory
Oct. 13, 2012 - Texas Tech vs. West Virginia
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech secured its first season sweep of a Big 12 opponent since 2006 when it topped West Virginia, 3-1, on Oct. 13 at the United Spirit Arena.
Tech defeated both Kansas and Texas A&M twice in 2006 before waiting five years to sweep the Mountaineers, who were in their first season as a Big 12 member.
The victory was also Tech's first victory over a Big 12 opponent in four or less sets at home since dropping Kansas, 3-1, on Sept. 26, 2006. Tech had previously taken a 3-1 win earlier in the season over the Mountaineers in Morgantown.
Meghan Stacy led all players with 19 kills while Breeann David added 14 to lead a balanced Red Raider attack set up by setter Emily Ruetter, who went for her seventh double-double of the year with 43 assists to go along with 12 digs.
Backed by eight kills in the opening set alone, Stacy matched her career high that she set just a week before in a near-upset of No. 14 Kansas State in Manhattan. The freshman also added five digs and a block.
