Willoughby expected
at practice today

Several seniors on the Hawaii women's volleyball team were mulling choices yesterday for shoes to wear on upcoming road trips.

Missing out on the catalog shopping was senior Kim Willoughby, who had another appointment with doctors. The All-American outside hitter injured her right knee during practice over the weekend and was held out of practice for a second consecutive day.

Willoughby, the reigning Western Athletic Player of the Year, is not expected to miss a third.

"She's been cleared to practice," said UH coach Dave Shoji.

Willoughby likely will wear a knee brace initially as a precaution, said UH trainer Renae Shigemura.

"Treatment will be rest and rehab, slowly getting her back on the court," said Shigemura.

The initial MRI results came back negative Sunday, with ligament damaged ruled out immediately.

Willoughby is expected to be ready for the Wahine's season opener Aug. 22 against Kansas State.
