The 45-minute program will provide fans with commentary and critical analysis on the semifinal games, which will feature South Carolina facing Louisville and UConn taking on Stanford.
The preview show will be held at the inaugural Just Women’s Sports Spot, the first in an event series that takes the classic sports bar experience and dedicates it entirely to women’s sports. The event, held in New York City, will also feature entertainment from four-time WNBA All-Star and DJ Elizabeth Cambage.
“I am so excited to join the Just Women’s Sports team for ‘The Warm-Up’ to talk about March Madness. The shooting display at this year’s tournament has been phenomenal,” Leslie said. “It’s awesome to be able to shine the spotlight on all these amazing women kicking butt in sport and I’m 100% loving the much-deserved attention women are receiving in sports at all levels. I’m here to support and help grow the game any way I can.”
Catch The Warm-Up streaming live on the JWS TikTok channel at 6 p.m. ET on Friday ahead of the NCAA tournament semifinals.
