Sue Bird breaks WNBA record being named to 11th All-Star Game


Sue Bird breaks WNBA record being named to 11th All-Star Game

It will be the sixth appearance for Moore and fifth appearance for Fowles.

Borrowing a format used earlier this year by the National Basketball Association, teams will be named for captains rather than conferences with the inaugural matchup using this method being between Team Delle Donne, for Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne, and Team Parker for Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks. That group of All-Stars includes Sue Bird, who made a record 11th All-Star Game breaking a tie with Tamika Catchings for most all-time. The game will take place Saturday, July 28 at Target Center in Minneapolis, Minn., live on ABC at 3:30 p.m. (ET).

Last year, Stewart was billed as an early All-Star Game MVP favorite, but the 6-foot-4 burgeoning star forward finished with nine points, six rebounds and six assists for a West team that claimed a 130-121 victory.

"The one pick I will give away is that she will be on my team", she said.

Moore leads the Lynx with 18 points per game, good for 10th in the WNBA.

With 17,933 fans in attendance, Fowles turned in a dominating performance as the Lynx (13-10) won for the 10th time in 14 games.

She rebounded from a pair of subpar performances in losses to Phoenix and CT as Minnesota also avenged an earlier loss to Indiana. They were voted on by players, coaches, fans and media. Head coaches could not vote for players on their own team.

The captains will draft their teams on Wednesday.

The All-Star teams will be revealed Thursday during ESPN2's telecast of a game between Washington and Dallas (5 p.m. PT tip-off). This season, Fowles is leading the league with 11.9 rebounds per game and has 13 double-doubles.
