AUSTIN, Texas — There is nothing in volleyball quite like the sound of a kill finding the floor with a purpose. Just ask Texas sophomore outside hitter Yazzie Bedart-Ghani, who swings with an intent to dent whatever is in the path one of her kill attempts.

The Longhorns used its slew of outside hitters to pound overmatched Army, 25-15, 25-22, 25-18, Friday at Gregory Gym in their third match in two days at the American Campus Classic.

Freshman Micaya White led third-ranked Texas
