Sky's Epiphanny Prince to miss a few weeks to play for Russia

Epiphanny Prince will miss a few weeks of the WNBA season to join the Russian national women's basketball team for the EuroBasket tournament from June 15-30.

Prince will leave the Chicago Sky on June 4 to train with the Russian team for a week before the tournament begins. She'll be back with the Sky at the end of the month and most likely miss six games.

She has a chance to be the second American-born player to play for Russia's national team in the Olympics. Becky Hammon played in the last two Olympics for Russia and also the 2010 world championship.

Since Prince, who was born in Brooklyn, hasn't played for the United States in any major FIBA-sanctioned international events, she is allowed to compete for Russia.
