East's Eckerman leads Texas volleyball to national final


Haley Eckerman and the Texas Longhorn volleyball team are headed for the NCAA final.  The Longhorns defeated Michigan in a 5 game thriller to move on to the title game.

Eckerman, the reigning Big 12 Player of the Year, tallied 16 kills in the victory. 

Texas steam rolled Michigan in the first set 25-11.  The Wolverines, however, rallied to take the next 2 sets.  Texas returned the favor winning the final 2 sets by scores of 25-12 and 15-11.

The Longhorns will face the winner of Penn State and Oregon in the championship match on Saturday night.
