The game will be held at 12:30 p.m. PT at the Wolstein Center on the campus of Cleveland State in downtown Cleveland.

The Women’s College All-Star Game will provide 20 of the country’s brightest stars one final opportunity to represent their programs and be recognized against the backdrop of the sport’s championship weekend.

Murekatete appeared in all 36 games for the Cougars this year, and averaged 11.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game. During the 2023-24 season, she became the all-time program leader in career rebounds (990), blocks (188), games played (153) and games started (145). She finished her WSU career with 1,552 points, good for fifth all-time in program history.

Before the season, she was named to the 2024 Lisa Leslie Award Watch List, and was also named to the 2023-24 Preseason All-Pac-12 team.

Murekatete will suit up for either Team Lieberman or Team Miller, which will be coached by Naismith Hall of Famers and basketball legends Nancy Lieberman and Cheryl Miller, respectively. The complete rosters for Team Lieberman and Team Miller will be announced the week of the event, while individual player commitments will be announced on a rolling basis in the coming days.
