Freshman Natalie Gower led the TCU volleyball team to a 3-0 (25-23, 25-21, 25-21) win over Baylor in a Big 12 match Wednesday night at the Ferrell Center in Waco.

With the sweep over the Bears (9-12, 1-4 Big 12), the Horned Frogs (13-7, 2-4) claimed their first win in program history in Waco and first win over Baylor as Big 12 members.

Gower finished with a team-high 10 kills, a .400 hitting percentage, a career-high four service aces and five total blocks.

Freshman Ashley Smith chipped in nine kills on the night, while freshman Shane Peters had another double-digit night in digs with 13.

OU receiver charged

Oklahoma wide receiver Trey Metoyer has been charged with two counts of indecent exposure and has left the football team.

Cleveland County prosecutors filed the charges Tuesday against the 20-year-old Metoyer, a sophomore who is accused of exposing himself to two women in Norman, according to an affidavit filed in the case.

Coach Bob Stoops said Metoyer has not been with the 18th-ranked Sooners since before its game against TCU on Oct. 5 and “I do not anticipate that he will return to the team in the future.”

The affidavit says the first incident occurred Aug. 29 and the second Sept. 17.

Briefly

• Mississippi men’s basketball: Coach Andy Kennedy said of suspended guard Marshall Henderson at SEC Media Days that “if I was a betting man, I would say that his lesson has been learned.” He says it remains to be determined how many games Henderson, a former Hurst L.D. Bell standout, will miss to start the season. He was found with what appeared to be a small amount of marijuana and cocaine after a traffic stop in Oxford.

• Holy Cross women’s basketball: Longtime coach Bill Gibbons stepped aside while the college reviews claims by a former player that he was physically and emotionally abusive. His assistant coaches will assume all coaching duties while Gibbons is on voluntary, paid leave. Former player Ashley Cooper, 20, has sued Gibbons and the school. Cooper says that Gibbons grabbed her, shook her and hit her at different times and that the school covered up the behavior.
