No. 1 Longhorns End Aggies' Season

Updated: Friday, December 6 2013, 10:50 PM CST

The No. 1 Texas Longhorns defeated the Texas A&M Aggies, 3-1 (25-14, 25-18, 15-25, 25-19), in the second round of the NCAA Championships at Gregory Gym Friday evening. With the win, Texas (25-2) advances to next weekend’s regional for the eighth consecutive year, the longest active streak among all NCAA Division I team.
 
All-Americans Haley Eckerman and Bailey Webster recorded 20 and 18 kills, respectively, while defensively the Longhorns notched a season-high 18.5 team blocks. Junior Khat Bell and sophomore Molly McCage accrued eight block-assists each, a season-high for Bell. Senior setter Hannah Allison tallied 45 assists, her most in eight matches.
 
The Texas defense came out ready to play, racking up four early blocks to take an early 9-3 lead. The block party continued as Texas notched 7.5 team blocks in the opening set, eclipsing their average of 2.84 blocks per set, which ranks 12th nationally. Eckerman and Webster swatted four kills apiece as Texas cruised to a 25-14 first set win.
 
The former conference foes exchanged points throughout the second set. Neither team led by more than two points until Texas took control, using a 4-1 spurt to take a 16-13 advantage. The Longhorns finished off the Aggies to win the second set 25-18.
 
Texas A&M (19-12) commanded the third set, jumping out to an 11-4 edge. Texas would get as close as four points at 12-8, but the Aggies would not relinquish the lead, winning 25-15 to close the gap to 2-1 for the match.
 
The Aggies carried momentum into the fourth, racing to a 6-3 edge. Texas would fight back to win the next four points, taking their first lead at 7-6. Tied at 12, the Longhorns swung the momentum with a 7-0 run to lead 19-12. Texas A&M would close to 21-18, but Eckerman put the Aggies away with her match-high 20th kill of the night to give Texas the 25-19 win.
 
Texas now advances to the NCAA Lincoln Regional next weekend (Dec. 13-14) where it will face the winner of the Durham Sub-Regional. It is unlikely that Texas will have more than 35 tickets for sale to donors who are season tickets holders, as this regional site is an advanced sellout. If you are interested in purchasing Lincoln Regional tickets, please stay tuned to TexasSports.com for updates.
