The biggest stars of the women’s basketball team will go onstage in the showcase event in San Antonio on Saturday night, proving that Turkey’s league is in good company as one of the best competing teams in the world. The WNBA takes place during the summer, while most of its players continue their careers in the rest of the world in the remaining parts of the year.

Galatasaray Medical Park will have four players at the All-Star game. The Chicago Sky’s Sylvia Fowles, the WNBA top scorer with 20.6 points per game, and Epiphany Prince will be in the East team, while Phoenix Mercury star Diana Taurasi and Connecticut Sun player Tina Charles will play for the West.

Fenerbahçe’s Angel McCoughtry, who plays for the Atlanta Dream, and Penny Taylor of the Mercury will play in the game.

A new signing of Beşiktaş, Courtney Vandersloot, will make her All-Star debut following her good performances for the Sky. McCoughtry and Charles will be the East starters, while Taurasi will start for the West. k HDN
