Who Is Rachel DeMita? Meet The NBA Celebrity Game Star

The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game is underway tonight. It's being televised on ESPN.

This year's contest features celebrities like Justin Bieber, Quavo, Nick Cannon, Candace Parker and more. The teams are being coached by ESPN's Rachel Nichols and Katie Nolan. Former NBA stars Tracy McGrady and Paul Pierce are also serving on the coaching staffs.

The star of this year's game, though, is probably Rachel DeMita. She might be the best player on the floor, too. She was the game's leading scorer for most of the contest.

DeMita, a social media sensation, is on Team Lakers. She's being coached by Nichols, McGrady and Michael B. Jordan.

The star of the game played collegiately. She grew up in Ohio and earned a scholarship to Old Dominion. In high school, she earned a McDonald's All-American Game nomination.

DeMita is wearing No. 32 tonight. Meet her below.
