Hall of Famer Cynthia Cooper has signed on to coach the lady hoopers and former Sacramento King standout and 14-year NBA vet Mike Bibby will coach the men.

This historic battle of the sexes game is part of the upcoming The 5 Tournament Pro Basketball Invitational, taking place in Vegas from July 19 to 29 and stirs old NBA rivalries via iconic matchups like the Bulls vs. Knicks and the Heat vs Spurs.
