Eastern Conference coach Lin Dunn was there when the ABL’s contest. She’d be all for adding it to the weekend.

“It was amazing,” she said. “I vividly remember the fan reaction and how excited people were. It’s something that we should poll the fans about. We ask them to vote for the starters, why not ask if they want to see a dunk contest. This weekend is about showcasing the best we have and entertaining the fans.”

A dunk contest and 3-point shootout would be easy to add to All-Star festivities. The two teams had open practices Friday afternoon and the two competitions could easily be held afterward.

“It would be a pretty cool thing,” Fowles said. “A lot more women who can get above the rim that’s pretty cool to see.”
