TCU volleyball has matched their 2021 Big 12 Conference win total, defeating West Virginia in five sets on Thursday.

The Frogs won a back-and-forth fifth set (17-15) with outside hitter Julia Adams scoring the winning kill. 

“I have high expectations, I mean we’re two and one, we’ve already met the total win count in conference from last year,” head coach Jason Williams said. “The way we’re playing we have the ability to get a lot of wins.” 

Outside hitter Audrey Nalls, who was named the Big 12 Player of the Week, tallied 24 kills and 14 digs. Nalls secured her 10th double-digit kill match of the year. 

Although the Mountaineers put up a good fight, the Frogs did not back down.

“If we want to be the best we’ve got to beat the best,” said Williams. “It’s gonna be a good test and be able to measure where we are right now.”

Williams’ strategy for upcoming games is to play aggressively. 

“That’s the only way you can beat Texas… I’ve been a part of a couple Baylor teams that were able to beat them, and that’s the only way it worked,” Williams said.
