Juwanna Mann follows the story of Jamal Jeffries (Miguel A. Núñez, Jr.), a basketball star whose undisciplined on-and-off-court antics have earned him a bad reputation in the basketball community. Jamal is suspended indefinitely after he strips naked in protest of being taken out of a game. His agent, Lorne Daniels (Kevin Pollak) is unsuccessful at finding him a new team, and cuts Jamal as a client. Jamal out of work, and lacking any other sort of skills decides to dress up as a woman named "Juwanna Mann" to play for the Charlotte Banshees of the WUBA (Fictional Version of the WNBA). Jamal quickly becomes a star on the court, and his overall attitude changes drastically as well. He learns to play with a team rather than just himself. While becoming successful with the Banshees, Jamal also finds himself in a problematic relationship with his teammate Michelle (Vivica A. Fox), whom he has romantic feelings for but cannot act on because Michelle knows him only as her confidante, Juwanna. However, his cover is blown in a playoff game when Jamal decides to dunk the ball and shatters the backboard. In all the excitement Jamal loses his wig revealing that he is in fact Jamal Jeffries. The movie ends with Jamal Jeffries being reinstated into the UBA (Fictional Version of the NBA) thanks to the support of his former WUBA teammates who vouch for him. Michelle gives him a championship ring and a kiss.
