In the first of their two final matches of the season, the Sooners fell short against TCU, 3-1, on Friday night at McCasland Field House in Norman.
The Horned Frogs established control of the first set with a five-point lead that forced an OU (1-4) timeout. From then on, TCU (2-6) led and then won the first set, 25-20.
A quick 5-1 lead in the second set instilled momentum into Oklahoma that enabled outside hitter Olivia Curtis to get the kill to seal the 25-17 victory. Then the momentum shifted in favor of TCU, with a commanding 25-15 third set triumph for the Horned Frogs.
An early 5-2 lead paved the way for the Horned Frogs to end on top in the fourth set, and to clinch the match win. In their spring season finale, OU will look to avenge its loss at 4 p.m. CT on Saturday, March 27 on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
