Seattle Storm coach Brian Agler has been named the head coach for the team of WNBA stars that will face the U.S. national team in the WNBA vs. U.S.A. Basketball All-Star event at Mohegan Sun Arena on July 10. Agler earned the nod by virtue of the Storm's league-best winning percentage through July 1 (13-2).
The national team, of course, will be coached by UConn's Geno Auriemma. His assistants are Jennifer Gillom (head coach, Los Angeles Sparks) and Marynell Meadors (head coach, Atlanta Dream).
The game will be televised by ESPN at 3:30 p.m.
