The stars of Ontario University Athletics (OUA) women’s basketball will be out on Saturday, May 9 as Queen’s University plays host to the eighth annual OUA All-Star game, presented by Recharge with Milk.

New this season, the participating coaches were given the opportunity to draft their teams, with each team consisting of OUA all-stars and all-rookies. As a result, Ottawa standouts Stephanie MacDonald and Krista van Slingerland will suit up on opposite sides under Windsor’s coach Chantal Vallée and Ryerson’s coach Carly Clarke, respectively. MacDonald earned OUA First Team accolades this season while van Slingerland was named to the Second Team in her return to OUA basketball with the garnet and grey.

The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. from the Athletics and Recreation Centre (ARC), home of the Queen’s Gaels.  Admission to the event is free.  If you can’t make it to the ARC, you can catch all the action live on OUA.tv.

The game itself will be just one of many events for the all-stars over the course of the weekend in Kingston.  On Friday evening, the OUA All-Stars will be attending the JUEL Banquet at the Ambassador Hotel & Conference Centre. Prior to tip-off on Saturday evening, the OUA All-Stars will also take part in various community initiatives to help grow the game of basketball in Ontario.
