Sophomore Emma Wright will miss up to six weeks of play with a broken thumb.

Wright sustained injury in the fourth set of Friday’s home-opener against Tulane. The Shockers won that game in five sets.

A six-week recovery would place Wright back in action near early November.

Wright is a 6-foot-3 middle blocker. She had eight kills, three blocks and a dig on Friday. She leads the Shockers with 33 blocks this season.
