ISU to Host No. 24 Texas A&M on Wednesday

The Iowa State volleyball team will try to get back on track Wednesday with a Big 12 match against No. 24 Texas A&M at Hilton Coliseum. First serve is set for 7 p.m.

Iowa State enters the match with a record of 11-7, 4-3 in the Big 12 while Texas A&M sits at 8-7, 1-5 in the Big 12.

"Obviously this is going to be a tough match for us," said head coach Christy Johnson. "I don't think that their conference record is a reflection of how good this team is. They've probably had the toughest conference schedule so far. This is an athletic and well coached team."

The Cyclones are coming off a 3-0 (27-30, 19-30, 23-30) loss at No. 20 Kansas State on Saturday. The loss ended ISU's three-match winning streak and put them all alone in fifth place in the league. The match marked just the fifth time that the Cyclones were out-blocked this season.

Erin Boeve and Nicole Lorenzen had 11 kills each for the Cyclones and Katie Churm led the team with 16 digs. Churm is leading the Big 12 in digs per game with 4.78.

Senior Amanda Craig went over 2,000 assists on her career, becoming just the seventh ISU player to accomplish that feat.

Texas A&M picked up its first Big 12 win of the season on Saturday at Oklahoma, downing the Sooners 3-1 (30-25, 25-30, 30-26, 30-22). The Aggies are led by Laura Jones, who leads the league averaging 5.77 kills. Jones had 30 kills in the win over the Aggies.

Texas A&M leads the all-time series, 20-1.
