Longhorns on five-match win streak

Chris Hummer

Texas has almost completed half of the Big 12 schedule, having played every team in the conference with the exception of Missouri, who the Longhorns will square off with this weekend at home.

The No. 10 Longhorns (13-4, 6-1 Big 12) have played well in conference play, with their only loss coming in a tough five-setter against rival Oklahoma in Norman.

The team is also riding a five-match winning streak. They have won these games in dominating fashion, dropping only three sets in that span.

Texas has been led by freshman Haley Eckerman during this run. Eckerman was named Big 12 Freshman of the Week for the second time this year on Tuesday, after averaging a .318 hitting percentage the previous week. She didn’t slow down much against Baylor on Wednesday either, recording 15 kills and a .387 percentage.

The Longhorns also expect help from All-American senior Rachael Adams, after her dominating 13 kills on .500 hitting percentage against the Bears.
