UConn's Nurse among invitees to Canadian national team camp

It figures to be another busy spring and summer for UConn guard Kia Nurse.

Nurse, a member of Canada's 2016 Olympic team, is one of 33 players invited to Canada's Women's National Team Program Assessment Camp which begins tomorrow in Edmonton. There are two parts to the upcoming schedule with the assessment camp running through Monday and then training camp going from Tuesday-May 22. Then the team leaves for Europe with two international friendlies in Spain - meeting the host country on May 26 and China on May 27. Canada will have three contests in France against Montenegro on May 31, France on June 1 and Ukraine on June 2.

This will be the first international competition for Canada since the announcement that former Olympics Tamara Tatham, Lizanne Murphy and Shona Thorburn have retired from the national team.
