On Saturday, April 3, the top senior collegiate players in women's basketball will showcase their talent at Tulane University's Fogelman Arena.
This year's All-Star Challenge team will compete against the 2004 USA Basketball Women's Senior National Team. This will mark the third time that an All-Star Challenge Team and a USA Senior National Team will compete against one another.
A prelude to the NCAA Women's Final Four in New Orleans, this year's game will be the second of a doubleheader event featured during the "WBCA Night of All-Stars."
