UConn's Nurse stars for Canada again

Sorry that I'm a little late with this since I was at media day for the Yale-Harvard Regatta today, but it was another impressive showing for UConn rising sophomore Kia Nurse during Canada's string of international friendlies in Europe.

Nurse did not start but had a team-high 14 points to go with five rebounds, two assists and a steal as Canada defeated Poland 73-68 in the first of three games Canada will play in France.

Canada will play tomorrow at noon and then wrap up its stretch of six games in nine days when it plays France on Friday at 2:45 p.m.

Canada currently has a 3-1 record on its tour. Nurse has scored in double figures in two of the four games and is averaging 9.5 points, 3 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 0.8 steals per game.

Chattanooga coach Jim Foster said on the "Pressrow" show that Nov. 30 is the date that UConn will be in town for the non-conference game between the schools.

UTC women's bball coach Jim Foster said on "Pressrow" that Mocs will host UConn on November 30th. Thanks to @jgreesontfp for the assist.

The game will mark the first regular-season non-conference game for UConn in the state of Tennessee since an 89-80 loss at Tennessee on Jan. 7, 2006. UConn does make the trip to Tennessee to face Memphis as part of its American Athletic Conference schedule.

UConn's intention is not to announce the dates of its non-conference schedule until it becomes official because dates tend to change. It already has happened with the Colgate game, previously reported to be played on Dec. 2 but I've been told that is no longer the case. LSU did announce that it will play UConn on the road on Dec. 21 and Kansas State announced it will play at UConn on Nov. 23. Also, UConn and Florida State will play on Dec. 11 at Mohegan Sun Arena.
