Atlanta Dream All-Star starters Angel McCoughtry and Shoni Schimmel had a busy Friday to open festivities for All-Star weekend at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn., as they took part in a number of activities ahead of Saturday’s Boost Mobile 2015 WNBA All-Star Game at Mohegan Sun Arena. The game will be televised live to a national audience on ABC beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET.
The day started with Shoni Schimmel taking part in the annual WNBA Fit All-Star Clinic for local youth in Connecticut. The players talked to the participants about the importance of physical fitness and spent the morning teaching the youth some basketball skills.
Following that, it was time for the day’s media activities which saw both McCoughtry and Schimmel take part in digital interviews with ESPN and NBA Entertainment. Both players then took part in a media session with national and local media outlets on hand to cover the event – then it was time to get to work with an open practice in preparation for tomorrow’s Boost Mobile 2015 WNBA All-Star Game.
