(AP) -- Epiphanny Prince is headed to Russia.
The Brooklyn native 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.
"I want to play the whole WNBA season, but made a commitment to play for the Russian national team," Prince told The Associated Press in a phone interview.
