All-Star Weekend: A Phoenix Showcase

Before Team USA women fly out to London, they’re bringing the heat to Phoenix. The WNBA All-Stars are up first on July 20, right in the thick of All-Star Weekend. It’s not just a game; it’s a showcase of the finest talent in women’s basketball.

The team’s recent training camp in Cleveland wasn’t just a routine gathering. Thirteen players, including nine former Olympians, hit the court hard. Among them were legends like five-time gold medalist Diana Taurasi and two-time winners Brittney Griner and Breanna Stewart. Iowa’s Caitlin Clark was also on the invite list, but commitments to the Hawkeyes’ Final Four run kept her away.

“The 12-member team is expected to be named later this summer.”

This snippet from the training camp teases what’s to come. With such a high-caliber roster, expectations are sky-high for Team USA.

With the Olympic stage set, Team USA is not just playing games; they’re building a legacy. Stay tuned for the team announcement later this summer, and remember, this summer’s showcase is just the beginning of the journey to Paris.
