NBRPA’s Nancy Lieberman, Janice Braxton, Cheryl Miller, & Cynthia Cooper to Join Current WNBA Stars Satou Sabally & Kelsey Plum as Coaches

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, March 14, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) and Intersport today announced that WNBA and Women’s Basketball Legends Nancy Lieberman, Janice Braxton, Cheryl Miller, Cynthia Cooper will join current WNBA stars Satou Sabally and Kelsey Plum as coaches for the 2024 Women’s College All-Star Game on April 6th, at the Wolstein Center at Cleveland State University.

The game, the first event of its kind since 2006, will be televised by ESPN2 at 3:30 pm ET.

Twenty-five years after launching a national women’s college basketball all-star event, Intersport has re-introduced the Women’s College All-Star Game as an annual showcase spotlighting the country’s elite players. These standouts, who will be exhausting their collegiate eligibility and are on the precipice of hearing their names called in the WNBA Draft, will have one final opportunity to represent their programs and be recognized against the backdrop of the sport’s championship weekend. Intersport launched the inaugural Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) All-Star Challenge in 1998, which the WBCA operated through 2006.

“The NBRPA is thrilled to once again partner with Intersport and to be able to have our WNBA Legends as part of this incredible event,” said Scott Rochelle, President & CEO, NBRPA. “Having icons like Cheryl, Janice, Cynthia and a member of our very own board of directors in Nancy, join up with two of today’s brightest stars in Satou and Kelsey to coach these phenomenal players, gives us an immense sense of pride to be able to help showcase the past, present and future of the game of basketball.”

“I’m honored to join these incredible and legendary women to coach these phenomenal talents,” said Nancy Lieberman, Two-time Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee (Class of 1996/2023), WNBA Legend and NBRPA Board Director, Treasurer. “I very much look forward to what promises to be an amazing atmosphere and game and seeing the greatness on the court.”
