The Rainbow Wahine opened their 2016 season last weekend without senior opposite Nikki Taylor.

Her presence on the terraflex Thursday night made the 'Bows feel whole again.

Taylor swung for a team-high 21 kills (.529) against Missouri State at the Stan Sheriff Center in her season debut, leading Hawaii to victory in straight sets.

With his All-American back on the floor, "I became a better coach this week," joked Hawaii head coach Dave Shoji after the match, speaking to OC16's Scott Robbs. 

Freshman Norene Iosia paced the 'Bows with 37 assists. Kirsten Sibley added 13 kills for the Wahine.
