Colorado Chill awarded NWBL All-Star Game

November 4, 2004 - National Women's Basketball League (NWBL) - Colorado Chill News Release

The Colorado Chill, a second-year team in the National Women’s Basketball League, was awarded the NWBL All-Star Game for the second straight year. The game will be played February 21, 2005 (President’s Day) at the Budweiser Events Center.

The announcement comes as the Chill is in the final stages of setting their schedule for the 2005 season. The fifth year league announced that with the success of last year’s game and the natural timing of the NBA All-Star Game being held in Denver the day before, it was a natural to award the All-Star Game to the Colorado Chill.

“This will be a great weekend for basketball in the state of Colorado’” said Dave King, General Manager of the Colorado Chill. “The NBA All-Star Game will be held in Denver Sunday, February 20, and then our All-Star Game will be held the next day right up the road.”

The NWBL All-Star Game will feature the top 16-20 players in the league, as voted on by fans and coaches. The game will be accompanied by a 3-point shooting contest and other skills events.

The Chill will be coached by Kelly Packard and headed by United States Gold Medal Olympian Ruth Riley, two-time WNBA All-Star Becky Hammon, and 2004 Chill MVP Katie Cronin.

Season tickets are available by calling Kim at Triple Crown Sports at 970-223-6644 ext 167. The All-Star Game is included in the 14-game season ticket package.
