Lynx's Moore, Augustus, Fowles named WNBA All-Stars

Minnesota Lynx Maya Moore, Sylvia Fowles and Seimone Augustus will be suiting up as All-Stars when the WNBA hosts its All-Star game at the Target Center in two weeks. Captains Elena Delle Donne and Candace Parker will take turns drafting those who have been voted as All-Stars, with a final roster announcement scheduled for Thursday, July 19 on ESPN2.

It's the eighth All-Star appearance for Augustus, a franchise record.

Forward Elena Delle Donne and guard Kristi Toliver were picked to participate in the July 28 showcase in Minneapolis.

The former University of CT star has appeared in 10 of the 11 All-Star Games played since she was drafted with the No. 1 overall pick by Seattle in 2002.

"I am incredibly blessed", Gray said.


Earlier on Tuesday, she broke the WNBA single-game scoring record when she had 53 points against NY.

Wilson was the only rookie to make the All-Star list and every team has at least one player in the game except for last-place Indiana. She's also averaging 6.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. Fans accounted for 40 percent of the vote, while current players, current head coaches and a media panel accounted for 20 percent each. She was followed by Delle Donne (42,171), Parker (38,575), Bird (37,098) and Taurasi (35,687).

Hughes will lead Team Delle Donne while Team Parker will be guided by Phoenix coach Sandy Brondello. The coaches earned their nods by their respective team's placement in the WNBA standings.

Breanna Stewart scored 30 points and grabbed nine rebounds, Jewell Loyd had 20 points, 10 boards and eight assists, and the league-leading Seattle Storm beat the Chicago Sky 101-83 on Wednesday. Coaches could not vote for players on their own team.
