The 2024 WNBA All-Star Game will showcase the U.S. Olympic team as it prepares for the Summer Games in Paris.

All-Stars who are members of the USA Basketball Women’s National Team will face the remaining WNBA All-Stars on July 20 in Phoenix.

The Paris Olympics begin the following week with the U.S. chasing its eighth consecutive gold medal.

The All-Star Game featured the same format in 2021 when Dallas Wings guard Arike Ogunbowale scored 26 points to lead Team WNBA to a 93-85 win over Team USA in Las Vegas ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.

The 3-point Contest and the Skills Challenge will take place on July 19.
