TCU also beat the University of Texas at San Antonio before losing to SMU in the tournament.
Junior Ashley Smith earned her fourth double-double in a row and led the team with 14 kills Saturday. She totaled 48 kills and 40 digs over the three matches.
Her teammate Regan McGuire led the Frogs in blocking during the Clemson match, finishing with five. The junior middle blocker has led TCU in the category nine times this season.
The team’s loss to SMU marked just the second loss this season under director of volleyball Jill Kramer. This is Kramer’s first season at TCU.
“When we came into this, we knew it was going to be a tough one to play,” Kramer said Saturday. “We had a little bit of a change in our lineup, and once we adjusted to that, we did a good job with it.”
The SMU tournament marked the end of non-conference play for the Frogs. The team’s next match will be in Austin against the University of Texas on Wednesday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.
