“I am proud to be part of developing this groundbreaking league and to join an amazing group of advisors,” Stewart said. “The future of our sport has never been brighter. Providing more opportunities for the many talented, up-and-coming players is essential to continuing the growth of our game, and my ambition is this league serves as a platform and accelerator for those athletes.”

Players that have already committed to Overtime Select include:

  • Aaliyah Chavez (2025 No. 1 recruit, per ESPN)
  • Jazzy Davidson (2025 No. 2 recruit)
  • Mia Pauldo (2025 No. 7 recruit)
  • Mya Pauldo (2025 No. 44 recruit)

Select’s founding sponsors include Gatorade, State Farm, adidas, and Nissan, with Overtime’s media platform helping create new opportunities for players to grow their brands before entering college. That also includes a business summit that will allow players to learn how to maximize their earning potential.

“We are so excited to tip-off Overtime Select and to give fans the chance to see elite match-ups with the best players in the country,” said Overtime Select director Sascha Malas. “Overtime WBB has been a leader in the space for five years and we can’t wait to continue our support and growth of women’s basketball with the future stars of the game. Our goal is to positively impact the women who participate in Overtime Select’s futures and enhance their success on and off the court.”

Overtime Elite has already produced two NBA Draft picks, Amen and Ausar Thompson, the fourth and fifth selections in June’s draft. Select is up next.
