Tests keep Wallace away from practice
Hawaii basketball coach Riley Wallace missed the Rainbow Warriors' practice yesterday to undergo scheduled medical tests at Kaiser Medical Center. He said he will also miss Monday's practice.
Wallace, now in his 20th season as UH head coach, last missed practice time in December 2004 when he had an angioplasty performed to improve blood flow in his right coronary artery. The procedure did not cause him to miss any games.
The Rainbows (4-4) are in the midst of a 10-day break between games and resume their six-game homestand on Dec. 16 against Northwestern State at the Stan Sheriff Center.
» Latoya Wily scored 25 points and grabbed 16 rebounds to lead the Brigham Young-Hawaii women's basketball team to an 87-82 win over Chaminade last night at the Cannon Activities Center.
Artevia Wily had 24 points and Kayla Burningham added 21 for the Seasiders. Brittnee Fonnesbeck led Chaminade with 26 points.
