It looks like we may not be seeing Kentucky Wildcats guard Jamal Murray compete with the Canadian National Team after all.
According to Adam Zagoria, the attendance and admissions policy at UK could prevent him from playing with the Canadians as they look to earn a spot in the Olympics in Rio next year.
We will hear Jamal Murray's fate later this week but source its 'not looking good b/c of Kentucky's admissions & attendance policy'— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) August 18, 2015
To clarify it's 'not looking good' for him to play w/ Canada in Olympic qualifying— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) August 19, 2015
According to Josh Lewenberg of TSN, Canada is trying to work with UK and the NCAA to try and keep Murray for the upcoming FIBA Americas Tournament while keeping him eligible for the upcoming college basketball season. Canada is hoping that Murray can at least compete in training camp and keep working with the team as he's expected to do this week.
