UConn's Nurse wins Golden Horseshoe Award

The third time was the charm for UConn guard Kia Nurse.

This was the third straight year that Nurse was a finalist for the Golden Horseshoe Award, presented to the top athlete in the Hamilton, Ontario area.

Golfer Mackenzie Hughes won the award in 2013 and hockey player Laura Fortino earned the award in 2014. This time Nurse was the winner beating out her brother Darnell, a defenseman with the NHL's Edmonton Oilers and rugby star Cindy Nelles.

She is the second women's basketball player to win the award, joining her Canadian national team teammate Shona Thorburn who was the winner in 2006.
