The WNBA All Star Game has been hosted by Mohegan Sun Arena four times.

All 11 American Athletic Conference schools will participate in the 2015 championship and ESPN Networks will provide television and digital coverage of the tournament.

The American's membership in 2014-15 will include UCF, Cincinnati, 2014 NCAA champion UConn, East Carolina, Houston, Memphis, USF, SMU, Temple, Tulane and Tulsa. UCF head coach Joi Williams is set to serve her eighth season with the Knights, who return four starters, including All-Freshman selection Zykira Lewis.
