Washington guard Kristi Kingma returns to practice

Kingma.jpgWashington sophomore G Kristi Kingma was back on the practice court after a trying stint in hospitals last week. The team’s most vocal leader, Kingma began suffering from kidney stones on Tuesday and was admitted into the hospital.
Kingma (pictured right) believed she was healthy when released late that night, but was re-admitted on Friday. She was released in time to make the end of the Huskies’ practice and travel to Portland. But she did not play in the one-point, regular-season opening loss the Vikings due to lightheadedness from all of the medication.
“I had a major headache and was just trying to make it through the game,” she said of sitting on the bench.
The Huskies (0-1) practiced this afternoon and Kingma was on the court. She said she was winded in her first practice back on Monday and isn’t 100-percent. But she’s going to play against BYU (1-0) on Wednesday, however.
Because Kingma has been out a week, UW coach Tia Jackson said she’ll keep F Mackenzie Argens in the starting lineup.
The Huskies will be without F Lydia Young due to knee tendinitis. She saw a doctor this morning and more information will be provided this evening. F Liz Lay is questionable, practicing about 45-minutes a session this week with knee tendinitis.
