As of now, we already know the WNBA All-Star roster, all set to face off against Team USA at Footprint Center on July 20. This upcoming matchup will be the second time Team USA will be locking horns against Team WNBA. The last time the two tipped off was in 2021 before the Tokyo Olympics when the WNBA won 93-85.

This year, there are high chances that the WNBA team might take a win home. As the selection for the All-Star roster came out, all eyes were on Fever rookie Caitlin Clark, who topped the charts with an impressive 700,735 votes. This marks a significant increase, as Clark garnered 600,000 more votes compared to last year’s first spot held by A’ja Wilson. Since Clark is a major reason behind the WNBA’s increased growth, her name on the list was quite expected. But she isn’t the only person rocking the charts.
