Chicago Sky guard Epiphanny Prince will not play with the Russian national team in the upcoming European Championship at the end of the month.
The Russian Federation informed Prince this week that she will not be used in the tournament. Prince plays in Russia during the winter and has citizenship in the country. She still could compete for Russia next year in the London Olympics if the team qualifies.
The European Championship runs from June 18 to July 3 in Poland with a bid in next year's Olympics awarded to the winner. Had Prince been chosen to play, she would have missed six Sky games.
The 23-year-old averaged 9.8 points for Chicago last year as a rookie and is expected to play a bigger role this season.Copyright © 2005 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
