AUSTIN, Texas — Plenty of work remains to be done for the Texas volleyball team, but every indication from the third-ranked Longhorns’ performance in winning all four of its matches in three days at the American College Classic at Gregory Gym shows that it’s on the correct path.

The Longhorns’ final match in the round-robin tournament — an easier-than-the-score-indicates 25-17, 25-19, 25-10 victory Saturday over a shorthanded Miami team — was their most dominating of their four contests.
