The Wildcats (19-6, 13-4 Big 12), who broke back into the national polls this week, had four players who landed double-digits in kills and, as a team, posted a .451 attack percentage. OU senior middle blocker Cathy Cook registered a match-high .542 hitting percentage, while landing a team-high 14 kills and committing only one error. The Sooners fell to 7-18 overall and 2-15 in the Big 12 Conference with the loss.

KSU set the tone for the match on their half of the court by committing only one error in 22 attempts in the game. Cook paced Oklahoma with four kills and no errors.
Cook continued her flawless hitting in the second game landing three kills in four attempts to increase her match-opening stretch to seven kills without an error. Cook equalled her first two game totals with seven kills in game three alone, while committing her first error of the match.
