Moore, Delle Donne top WNBA All-Star vote getters
NEW YORK (AP) — Minnesota star Maya Moore is the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star game.
She will start for the Western Conference alongside Phoenix’s Diana Taurasi and Brittney Griner, Tulsa’s Skylar Diggins and Los Angeles’ Candace Parker.
Elena Delle Donne received the most votes in the Eastern Conference, earning her second straight trip to the All-Star game. She became the first rookie to lead the league’s All-Star balloting last year, but wasn’t able to play after she suffered a concussion a few days before the game.
Delle Donne is sidelined with a flare-up of Lyme Disease and has only played once for Chicago in the past 10 games.
New York’s Cappie Pondexter, Indiana’s Tamika Catchings, and Atlanta’s Shoni Schimmel and Angel McCoughtry round out the rest of the East starters for the July 19 game in Phoenix.
