It is the first preseason game in the WNBA this year.

McBride, a Villa Maria graduate and former Notre Dame All-American, was selected No. 3 overall in the recent WNBA draft. McBride and the Stars opened training camp Sunday.

It will be a reunion of sorts for McBride and former Notre Dame teammate Skylar Diggins, who is in her second season with the Shock. Diggins and McBride were members of the same backcourt for three seasons with the Fighting Irish.

The Stars will host the Shock on Tuesday in a preseason game before opening the regular season May 16 on the road against the Atlanta Dream.
