WNBA All-Star Roster Released with Clark & Reese

The WNBA All-Star Roster is set including rookies Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark who will be facing off against Team USA on July 20th.

Along with Reese and Clark, nine-time All-Star Nneka Ogwumike of the Seattle Storm will be heading to Phoenix. Six-time All-Star DeWanna Bonner of the Connecticut Sun, Aliyah Boston and Kelsey Mitchell of the Indiana Fever will also be a part of the team.

Clark commented, “This is a huge accomplishment for everybody on Team USA and everyone on Team WNBA. They all deserve the same praise.” This will be the first time Clark and Reese will be teammates having previously matched up against each other in college.

“I don’t think I’ve ever been her teammate before, even at USA Basketball. I know people will be really excited about it, but I hope it doesn’t take away from everyone else,” Clark added.

When Reese got the news of her spot on the roster, she said, “I’m just so happy. I know the work I put in. Coming into this league, so many people doubted me and didn’t think my game would translate and I wouldn’t be the player that I was in college or better or would be worse and wouldn’t be where I am right now.”

She went on to say, “I can’t thank my teammates and my coaches enough for just believing in me and trusting me. I know all of them are going to come to Phoenix and support me. So I’m really happy right now.”

Team WNBA will be traveling to the Phoenix Mercury Footprint Center who will host the 20th annual All-Star Game set for July 20th.
