In its first matchup, Kansas dominated Baylor in virtually all aspects of the game en route to a 3-1 victory. In their second matchup on Wednesday night, Kansas was even stronger.
The Jayhawks won in straight sets: 25-14, 25-13, 25-15.
With the loss, Baylor falls to 11-14 on the season, including 3-6 in the Big 12.
Baylor finished with 30 errors in the three-set match. Kansas limited itself to only 14, including merely six attack errors. Baylor finished with only 2.0 total blocks in the match compared to Kansas’ 10.0 in only three sets. The defensive impact was felt right away, as Baylor hit only .088 for the match compared to Kansas’ .451.
Baylor failed to score 20 points in a set for the fourth time this season.
Since rally scoring was instituted in 2001, Baylor had not done that a single time until this season.
Senior outside hitter Zoe Adom led Baylor with nine kills on a .185 hitting percentage. After finishing with 41 kills in both of her last two matches, freshman setter Morgan Reed finished with only 23 assists in the three-set match.
No other Baylor player finished with more than five kills or six digs in the match.
