Washington freshman Liz Lay closer to making a debut?

Coach Tia Jackson said the 6-foot-1 forward has had limited stints on the practice floor and looks to be about 60 to 70 percent healthy.
Even as Pac-10 play quickly approaches, Jackson still doesn’t plan to redshirt Lay. Her being on the trip is probably more for team unity, but California did debut senior center Devanei Hampton, who suffered a knee injury, at the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas, Virgin Island last month. The No. 12 Bears played Hampton at about four-minute segments. Washington could do the same with Lay.
“She went to work on everybody,” said Jackson of Lay in practice on Sunday. “There were moments when you couldn’t even tell she was injured. Then you look at that large apparatus on her knee and go, ‘Yeah, I forgot about that.’ But she had some really good minutes in practice for us the other day. We’re eager.”
Meanwhile Mackenzie Argens, who had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in her left knee on Dec. 3, is still about a month from returning.
