On July 10th, the usual WNBA All-Star Game format will change to “WNBA vs. USA Basketball” at an event called “The Stars at the Sun” which takes place in Connecticut. The purpose of the game is to give the USA Basketball team a really good team to warm up against.
The USA Basketball Team – in case you forgot – is coached by University of Connecticut coach Geno Auriemma. His assistant coaches will be Meadors and Jennifer Gillom, the head coach of the Los Angeles Sparks.
The WNBA All-Star Team will be coached by Seattle’s Brian Agler. Nancy Darsch, his assistant with the Storm, will be his assistant with the WNBA Team.
The game takes place on July 10th on Saturday at 3:30 pm ET and will be televised by ESPN.
