West Texas sweeps CU in volleyball

CANYON, Texas - West Texas A&M overwhelmed Cameron Tuesday in a Lone Star Conference volleyball match but the Aggies did show some fight by taking the Lady Buffs to a tough third set before falling, 25-22.

The first two sets were not any fun for the Aggies as they lost by the scores of 25-18 and 25-12.

The powerful Buffs knocked down kills at a staggering clip, finishing with 51 kills compared to just 26 for the Aggies. And, Cameron was not very efficient, hitting just .078.

"We weren't able to stop their offense tonight and we couldn't get anything going on our end," said head coach Qi Wang.  "I thought our energy was better in the third set but once they (West Texas) got going again we weren't able to match up offensively and defensively we couldn't get a block."

Rebecca Green and Kat Evans led the Aggies with seven kills but the Aggies have now dropped their last two matches as they moved to 5-5 overall and 1-4 in league play.

Following a quick 5-0 Cameron start to the match, West Texas A&M controlled the pace in the first two sets by limiting the Ags to 13 kills and scoring a combined 26 points. Cameron would come out of the locker room in the third with their first lead since the opening frame but the Lady Buffs would break a 14-14 tie and won the set.
