USA Basketball-WNBA to matchup in 2010 All-Star Game on July 10

The WNBA announced the location and format for the 2010 All-Star Game today. The league joins Mohegan Sun Arena in hosting the game which will feature USA Basketball Women’s National Team competing against a team of WNBA all-stars.

The game is slated for Saturday, July 10, 2010. It will be broadcast on ESPN with tip-off set for 3:30 p.m. ET.

The U.S. squad will be coached by Geno Auriemma, who will guide the national team. As the head coach at the nearby University of Connecticut, Auriemma has led the school’s women’s program to six national championships, including the 2009 title.

“We will showcase the greatest female basketball players in the world,” said league president Donna Orender in a statement. “With Geno Auriemma leading the national team in his home state before one of the WNBA’s most dedicated fan bases at a terrific venue, we’re set for a great basketball experience.”
