The Longhorns own a 5-1 record all-time against San Diego but this will be the first postseason meeting between the two teams. Texas won the Austin Regional after defeating No. 3 seed Ohio State 3-1 and the nation’s top-ranked program is going into the clash on Thursday having won five-straight in this series after the Toreros won the first match-up, 3-2, in 2002.
The last time Texas and San Diego met, the Longhorns swept the Toreros, 25-19,25-15,25-15, in the 2021 season opener in Austin, last August. This game though is expected to be a much closer contest with San Diego heading into this Final Four clash confident shining brightly in the 3-2 victory against No. 1 Stanford in the Stanford Regional final last week.
Three of the last five wins for Texas against San Diego have been via sweeping results, including back-to-back 3-0 victories in 2009 and 2012.
Texas has a lot of standout players, but pay close attention to senior outside hitter Logan Eggleston, who is coming off an outstanding regular season where she was named the Big 12 Player of the Year for the third-consecutive season, as well as some dominant performances during the Austin Regional.
Redshirt senior Katie Lukes and Grace Frohling are among the top players to watch for San Diego. Last Saturday night’s win over Stanford marked the Toreros’ program-record 28th in a row.
