UConn's Nurse, Connecticut Sun's Weisner invited to Canada national team camp

UConn's Kia Nurse, the leading scorer on Canada's gold-medal winning Pan Am Games squad and FIBA Americas title-winning team, and Connecticut Sun rookie Jamie Weisner are among 24 players invited to Canada's national team training camp later this month.

All 12 players who played for Canada in the Pan Am Games and FIBA Americas tournament are among those invited to the May 21-30 training camp in Edmonton.

After the training camp concludes, a team will be picked to head overseas to play five international friendlies in six days in Spain and France with games on June 4 & 5 in Spain and contests on June 7, 8 & 9 in France.

There will be another training camp from June 26-July 8 in Edmonton before facing China in games on July 9, 10 and 11 in the Edmonton Grads International Classic. There will be another training camp, this one in Toronto, from July 22-26 before heading to the U.S. (perhaps in Connecticut) for an exhibition game/games against the U.S.
