"Not looking good" for Jamal Murray playing with Canada

If Jamal Murray can't play with Team Canada, we should see him back on UK's campus soon enough.

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.

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.
