AUSTIN, TX (KCBD) -

Texas Tech volleyball won its first set in Austin since 2009, but ultimately fell 3-1 (25-19, 20-25, 25-21, 25-12) at No. 3 Texas Saturday in front of 3,892 fans in Gregory Gym.

After Texas (19-2, 11-0) closed out a tight first set, the Red Raiders (14-10, 3-8) evened the match at 1-1 by winning the second set, 25-20, behind seven kills from sophomore Chandler Atwood. Tech continued to push the Longhorns in the next stanza, but Texas was able to squeak out the third set before finishing the match in four.

“I was really happy with our play today,” head coach Tony Graystone said. “We competed hard and gave ourselves opportunities to win a lot of points. We were right there for a majority of the match, and this is definitely how we want to play down the stretch. We’re looking forward to getting back to Lubbock and preparing for Oklahoma.”

The Red Raiders host Oklahoma Wednesday, Nov. 8, at United Supermarkets Arena. First serve is slated for 6 p.m. on FOX Sports Southwest. The match is one of just two remaining home matches in the 2017 season. The Red Raiders will be looking to avenge a straight-set loss at Oklahoma on October 4.
