    Default 2019 WNBA All-Star Game – Experimental Rules

    For those board members who plan on watching the WNBA All-Star game this weekend, the WNBA is going to try two (2) experimental rules during this game. From the WNBA:

    2019 WNBA All-Star Game – Experimental Rules
    July 25, 2019

    Two experimental rules will be in place for the game:

    20-Second Shot Clock

    The shot clock will be shortened from 24 to 20 seconds. The shot clock will still reset to 14 seconds after an offensive rebound.

    Live Play Substitutions

    A limited number of player substitutions will be permitted during live play to 1) increase pace and 2) allow All-Stars to enter the game without waiting for a stoppage in play. Each team can use up to one live play substitution per quarter, and only one player can be substituted at a time. Live play substitutions can only be made by the offensive team. A player cannot be substituted out while she is holding the ball.

    A “Player Check-In Spot” will be designated near mid-court on the sideline as indicated by the arrows below. A player checking into the game during live play must stand on this spot, and be tagged in by a player leaving the court to prevent more than 5 players on the court at any time.

    Player substitutions during game stoppages will take place per normal WNBA rules.

    The All-Star weekend will begin this Friday and include a 3-Point Contest and Skills Challenge, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, home of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces. ESPN will provide live coverage beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

    Former Lady Zag Courtney Vandersloot will compete in the Skills Challenge on Friday.

    The Skills Challenge will be a three-round, obstacle-course competition that tests dribbling, passing, agility and three-point shooting skills. The event will showcase a head-to-head, bracket-style tournament format.

    The WNBA All-Star 2019, featuring Team Delle Donne vs. Team Wilson, will be played on Saturday, July 27 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, home of the Aces. The 16th WNBA All-Star Game will be televised live by ABC at 3:30 p.m. ET.

    Well, CV won her first round in the skills competition, but in the semi-finals, she was way ahead but could not hit her 3-pt shot.

    The competition was won by CV's teammate Diamond Deshields.

    CV's wife, Allie Quigley (2-time defending champ) was not able to defend her 3-point shooting championship. Allie finished in 3rd place in the first round and did not qualify for the finals.
