19th-ranked Baylor volleyball (8-4, 0-1 Big 12) hit a season-low .151 offensive efficiency to drop a four-set loss to Texas Tech Wednesday night at the Ferrell Center, 13-25, 25-11, 25-21, 25-18.
The Bears’ loss snapped a seven-match winning streak against the Red Raiders (12-3, 1-0 Big 12) and first defeat to Texas Tech under fourth-year head coach Ryan McGuyre.
Sophomore Yossiana Pressley led the Bears with 16 kills and posted 11 digs for her fifth double-double of the season. Senior Aniah Philo matched a season-high 21 digs and added 10 kills for her third-straight double-double and sixth of the season.
The Bears came out rolling in set one and posted six blocks to limit the Red Raiders to a -.025 hitting efficiency to easily take the opener, 25-13.
Texas Tech came storming back in set two, and Baylor hit .032 for seven kills en route to dropping the set, 25-11.
The third set saw five tie scores and two lead changes. Baylor went on top 11-7 after a Pressley kill, but a 6-0 run by the Red Raiders pushed them to take the frame, 25-21.
Shelly Fanning put the Bears up by one early, but BU couldn’t overpower the TTU defense to drop the set and match in four, 25-18.
