UConn's Nurse helps Canada past Italy

UConn rising sophomore Kia Nurse had nine points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal while playing a team-high 29 minutes as Canada defeated Italy 67-62 to improve to 4-1 in its European tour.

Miah-Marie Langlois had 11 points, Kim Gaucher had 10 points and Miranda Ayim added eight points and nine rebounds for Canada, which wraps up its string of international friendlies with a game against France tomorrow.

Giorgia Sottana had a game-high 16 points to lead Italy.

Also, the WNBA released its annual survey as former UConn star Maya Moore received 66.7 percent of the votes from the league's general managers to win another MVP award, received the same number of votes when it came time to pick the player they would start a franchise with and tied Elena Delle Donne by receiving 25 percent of the votes in the category of best pure shooter. Sue Bird was named on 41.7 percent of the ballots as the best leader, received 75 percent of the votes when GMs were asked who would make the best coach and tied Delle Donne with 33.3 percent when they voted for the player they wanted to take the last shot with the game on the line. Tina Charles received 50 percent on the votes as the player with the best post moves while Kiah Stokes was named by 25 percent of the GMs as the sleeper rookie most likely to be a success.
