The Horned Frog volleyball team couldn’t figure out the Oklahoma Sooners Saturday afternoon, suffering a 3-0 sweep at the Howard McCasland Field House in Norman, Okla.

The Frogs were defeated in the first set 25-22, despite holding a 21-18 lead in the set. The second set had a familiar story, with the Frogs out in front by four Early on, but falling 25-21.

The third set was a heart-breaker for the Frogs, who had the Sonnets on the brink with 24-23 lead, but surrendered three unanswered points to give the Oklahoma the set win and the sweep.

“I thought we put good stretches and points together, but not the complete match,” TCU Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer said. “OU played with a lot of up and down type of energy and momentum. We really wanted to control the tempo and pace of the match, and we didn’t do as good of a job at that as we could have.”

Kramer said she felt that streaky performance of the team defined the match.

“We kept bouncing back and forth a bit,” Kramer said. “We hadn’t done that very often of late, and it’s tough to play on the road anywhere in the Big 12. We have to do a better job of managing ourselves and controlling the things we can control whether we are on the road or at home.”

Junior middle-blocker Regan McGuire had a strong outing in the loss, recording 10 kills and two digs for the Frogs. Outside hitters Ashley Smith and Ashleigh Martin also had noteworthy  performances, as Smith tallied nine kills and a team-high six digs, while Martin recorded eight kills.

The Frogs conclude their regular season on Friday Nov. 27 when they host the West Virginia Mountaineers at the TCU Campus Recreation Center. Match time is set for 2 p.m.
