Hawaii improves to 20-0 after easy three game victory at Nevada
Reno - It was billed as a showdown of the two best in the Western Athletic Conference. When it was over, second ranked Hawaii proved they are still the kings of the hill.
A school record 2,023 came out to the Virginia Street Gym Friday evening hoping for the upset. Instead, they watched in awe as the Wahine won easily in three games 30-25, 30-21, 30-20 to improve to a perfect 20-0 and 8-0 in the WAC Western Division. Nevada, who had won all 10 home matches prior to this evenings match, dropped to 18-4 and 7-2 in the WAC West.
Kim Willoughby led the way for Hawaii with 25 kills and Lily Kahumoku added 17 kills and 11 digs.
Hawaii has now won 45 straight games dating back to September 7th when they lost the first game against the University of Washington.
The Wahine hit for a .331 percentage compared to only .103 for the Wolfpack and out blocked Nevada 7 to 6.
The only negative of the night for Hawaii came in game one when Karin Lundquist went down with an apparent right knee injury. Preliminary reports are that it is only a sprain. Further test will be taken to make sure.
The Wahine head to Boise tomorrow for a match against the 1-19 Broncos before heading home on Sunday.
