COLUMBIA - The Missouri Tigers volleyball team beat Baylor 3-1 (25-22, 17-25, 25-20, 27-25) at home on Saturday afternoon.

This victory marks the 400th of Tigers (20-9, 6-6 Big 12) head coach Wayne Kreklow's career, becoming the 3rd active in the Big 12 to reach this milestone.

"We have been fortunate to be in situations where we have had great support and have been able to coach some great players," Kreklow said about reaching this feat.

"I think it is a great accomplishment, but to be honest, I wasn't even really thinking about it tonight; all I wanted to do was beat Baylor because I knew what a big match this was for this team."

The Tigers won the game despite having less kills, digs, and hitting percentage.

MU has now won twenty matches in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2004 and 2005.

The Tigers will host Iowa State on Wednesday next.
