No. 20 Kansas volleyball sweeps Texas Tech

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE

The No. 20 Kansas Jayhawks swept Texas Tech on Saturday to continue a historic season, and now await their playoff fate, to be announced on Monday afternoon.

The No. 20 Kansas Jayhawks (25-6, 12-4) volleyball team capped a historic home season with a sweep of Texas Tech (14-18, 3-13) on Saturday at Horejsi Family Athletics Center, 25-11, 25-19, 25-19. It was the 12th sweep of the year for the Jayhawks.

Junior libero Brianne Riley, a Naperville, Ill. native, broke Kansas' career digs record in the match, finishing the day with 11 for a total of 1,459 career digs. She eclipsed the previous mark, set by Melissa Manda (1,457 from 2007-10), in just three seasons.

Saturday's match was Senior Day for the Jayhawks, with three key contributors to this year's team playing their final home match: middle blocker Tayler Tolefree, defensive specialist Morgan Boub and outside hitter Sylvia Bullock. This season's Kansas team won 16 games at home, a school record, and has spent eight straight weeks ranked in the Top 25.

Kansas will learn their postseason fate Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. when the NCAA Tournament field is announced. The selection show will be televised on ESPNU.
