Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese were among the players named to the WNBA All-Star Team late Tuesday.

This year's WNBA All-Star Game will feature a battle between Team USA and Team WNBA. Nearly the entire roster of Team WNBA was eligible for Team USA, including Clark and Reese, who are in their first year with the WNBA.

The 2024 All-Star Game marks the second time the WNBA opted to pit Team USA against the remaining top players in the league. In 2021, Team WNBA defeated Team USA 93-85.
