The Texas Tech volleyball team, behind a season-high 19 team blocks, rallied from a 2-1 deficit to defeat Baylor, on Wednesday night, in Waco, Texas.  The Red Raiders (14-1, 2-1) got off to a early lead, taking the first set, 26-24, behind seven total team blocks.  Baylor responded in the second by tying the match with a 25-17 win.  Baylor (10-6, 1-1) kept the momentum rolling in the third, becoming the first team this season to take set No. 3 from Tech, 25-21.

Texas Tech would respond though in a big way, taking the fourth set, 25-15, behind another seven total blocks.  In the fifth and final set, Baylor sprinted out to a 6-2 lead, but Tech battled back with a 6-0 run to take a 9-7 lead.  Baylor then went on a 5-0 run of its own to take a 12-9 lead.  The Red Raiders swung the momentum pendulum back in their direction with a 4-0 run to take a 13-12 lead, before finishing the comeback, 15-13.

"When we fell behind in the fifth, I knew we could beat them to eight before the switch," head coach Don Flora said.  "We've battled like that all year, especially in the fifth set, so when we got back into that set, I knew we could get it done.  I'm so proud of each and every one of them for the way they fought back.  Just a great win."

Tech is now 12-1 this season when holding its opponent under a hitting percentage of .200.  Texas Tech will return home on Saturday, October 4th, to take on Kansas State with first serve is set for 3 pm at the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock.
