The All Star Celebrity Game will be played at the Bojangles’ Coliseum with coverage beginning at February 15 at 7 pm ET (12am GMT).
The home team will be coached by three-time Olympic Champion and member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Dawn Staley.
And 2018 WNBA Champion Seattle Storm’s Sue Bird will coach the away team.
Both rosters also feature a “hometown hero” for the first time with Jason Weinmann, a 47-year-old Marine who rescued North Carolina flood victims using a military transport vehicle during Hurricane Florence, playing on the home team and James Shaw Jr., a 29-year-old Nashville resident who disarmed a gunman in a local restaurant, suiting up for the away team.
