Skylar Fields and Logan Eggleston each had 10 kills as the Texas volleyball team swept Kansas 25-19, 25-18, 25-15 in Lawrence, Kan. on Saturday.

The Longhorns didn’t show any signs of relaxing after a sweep of No. 1 Baylor on Wednesday. Texas made it seven straight sweeps in Big 12 play with Saturday’s win. They’ve dropped just one set in conference and that was in the first match against Iowa State.

Texas held the edge in every major category but dominated in team blocks, 12-2. Brionne Butler led with seven blocks while Asjia O’Neal had five and Micaya White added four. White also had seven kills and seven digs.
