Solid start at FIBA Worlds for UConn's Nurse

UConn freshman Kia Nurse finished with nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal to help Canada win its opener at the FIBA World Championship for Women with a 69-54 win over Mozambique in Ankara, Turkey.

Nurse, the youngest player on the Canadian national team, got the start and had a pair of baskets in the second quarter when Canada began to take over the game after an inspired early effort by Mozambique.

Miah-Marie Langlois, Kim Gaucher and Tamara Tatham had 11 points each to lead Canada.

The U.S., featuring former UConn stars Sue Bird, Tina Charles, Maya Moore, Diana Taurasi and current Husky star Breanna Stewart, opens up against China at 2:30 p.m. The game will air live on NBA TV and ESPN3.com.
