Ashley Shook made 34 assists in the win. She added three digs and three kills.

Texas started the first set with a 4-0 lead and kept the Cyclones at bay for much of the match. A kill by Yaazie Bedart-Ghani put the set away.

The Cyclones kept the second set close, eventually taking a 17-15 lead. The Longhorns responded with a 3-0 run to regain the advantage. Iowa State went up 19-18 before a 5-0 run by Texas propelled them to the win.

In the final set Texas held a 21-19 lead before winning four of the next six points to clinch the match.

The Texas volleyball squad next travels to Lawrence to take on the Kansas Jayhawks Wednesday at 8 p.m.
