She will hoping her performances inspire a new breed of Poles to take up the sport, something FIBA Europe will be seeking to assist as they launch the Year of Women`s Basketball project on the same day as the All-Star Game.
The initiative aims to improve participation in the sport, increase its popularity and raise awareness of the women's game.
Bibrzycka believes the All-Star Game will be a great way to tip-off the scheme and is delighted to be involved.
"I am very excited," she told PA Sport. "It`s the first time this game has been held and I`m happy to be here.
"I am the only player from Poland here so it`s a great honour to be part of this event. We are going to have a lot of fun on the court but we also hope to win."

"All of us players are interested in promoting the sport and I am happy to help in any way," she added.
"I will be going round explaining how important it is for people to play in team sports. We have a lot of great players around but only men`s basketball is big in our country. So we will be looking to improve that."
