It will keep fans on edge.
The WNBA revealed a brand new format for the Skills Challenge this year as part of their All-Star weekend. Four All-Star pairs will compete against each other on a course of obstacles that tests skills like dribbling, dribbling passing and agility.
The course will be completed by each team one-by-one, with the participation of both players. The first player has to complete the course in this way:
Pass a 25-foot chest at a target starting from the baseline. Complete the pass or limit the number of attempts to three.
Dribble through four pylons including a car
After three shots, you can continue with the course or make a short shot on the lane.
After three attempts, make a 3-pointer from the left corner.
Dribble to opposite goal and make any basket — dunk, layup, jump shot, etc.
The second participant will start the course once the first has rebounded his shot or has passed the ball to him. The second person will follow the same sequence. The second player will complete the course in the same order.
The WNBA determines the order for the first round. The teams with the fastest times advance to the second round, where they complete the course again. In the event of a tie, both teams must complete the course.
ESPN will air the Skills Challenge and 3-Point Contest this year on Friday. The competition starts at 4 pm. ET.
The following are the teams for this year’s Skills Challenge.
