WNBA luminaries and current stars will be coaching in the 2024 Women’s collegiate All-Star Game, which will include collegiate stars such as Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese, according to an announcement made on Thursday by the National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) and Intersport.

At the historic event, which is scheduled to take place on April 6 at Cleveland State University, coaching will be provided by legends like as current WNBA stars Satou Sabally and Kelsey Plum, as well as former legends Nancy Lieberman, Janice Braxton, Cheryl Miller, and Cynthia Cooper.

The purpose of the game, which is scheduled to take place over the weekend of the NCAA Women’s Final Four, is to bring attention to the accomplishments and abilities of the best college players in the country, particularly those who are on the verge of beginning their professional careers, such as Clark. A tradition that began 25 years ago, when Intersport introduced the first Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-Star Challenge, is being revived as a result of this initiative. The occasion is the first of its sort to take place since 2006, and it is anticipated that basketball fans from all around the country will pay a significant amount of attention to it.

The President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Basketball Registry, Scott Rochelle, stated his excitement about the relationship and the ability to demonstrate the development of women’s basketball through the medium of this game.

In a press release, Rochelle expressed her excitement about the National Basketball Players Association’s (NBRPA) decision to once again collaborate with Intersport and to be able to include our WNBA Legends in this remarkable event. With the likes of Cheryl, Janice, Cynthia, and Nancy, a member of our very own board of directors, joining forces with two of the brightest stars of today, Satou and Kelsey, to coach these phenomenal players, we feel an immense sense of pride in being able to contribute to showcasing the history, the present, and the future of the game of basketball.
Both Clark of Iowa and Angel Reese of LSU, two college standouts who have made headlines with their performances, are among the players who will be honored for the occasion. Their presence in a prospective roster alongside other renowned talents such as Cameron Brink, Georgia Ammore, and Rickea Jackson exemplifies the breadth of talent and promise that exists in women’s collegiate basketball at the present time. In order to choose who will participate in the All-Star game, the list of sixty players will be cut down to twenty.

“It is an honor to join these incredible and legendary women to coach these phenomenal talents,” said Lieberman, who is a two-time inductee into the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame (Class of 1996/2023) and the treasurer of the National Basketball Radio Players Association board. “I am looking forward to participating in what is sure to be an incredible atmosphere and game, as well as witnessing the greatness that will be displayed on the court.”
