The Missouri Tigers upset the fifth-ranked Texas Longhorns. No, it wasn’t Chase Daniel outplaying Colt McCoy. Instead, it was Na Yang’s 17 kills that helped the #22 Tigers sweep the Longhorns 30-23, 30-23, 30-19, Sunday.
It was the first time in 32 attempts that Mizzou beat a top-five team. Jessica Vander Kooi helped head coach Wayne Kreklow get career win No. 301 collecting 13 kills, eight digs, and five blocks. Nicole Wilson tied her career high with nine blocks to go along with 11 kills. Mizzou won their ninth-straight match at home and extended their home winning streak over Texas to seven matches.
