OU Sweeps Baylor

The University of Oklahoma volleyball team made quick work of Baylor in a 3-0 road win on Saturday afternoon. The Sooners improved to 16-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big 12, while the Bears dropped to 9-13 and 1-5.

Oklahoma, which has won nine of its last 10 contests against Baylor, picked up its eighth straight-sets victory of the season, by scores of 25-13, 25-13 and 25-19, and first in conference play.

"We played pretty solid," said head coach Santiago Restrepo. "We worked a lot this week on blocking and defending. We did, overall, a very good job of that. I think our serving passing did very well today and that was key."
