Busy weekend in San Antonio

Not only will UConn set a record by having six of its former players taking part in Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game but former Huskies Sue Bird, Swin Cash, Nykesha Sales and Diana Taurasi are among 30 candidates to be named among the top 15 players in the history of the WNBA. Not only will the top 15 players be recognized at halftime but the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will also be announced at that time.

As for the game, which will be played on Saturday beginning at 3:30 p.m. at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, former Huskies Bird, Cash, Taurasi and Maya Moore will start for the Western Conference squad while Tina Charles will start for the East. Charles' current Connecticut Sun and former UConn teammate Renee Montgomery will also play for the Eastern Conference team.

The final All-Star spot will be announced today. Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks was voted to start for the West but is injured so WNBA President Laurel Richie will pick her replacement. That player will be announced later today. Western Conference coach Brian Agler will get to select Parker's replacement in the starting lineup.
