NEW YORK — Elena Delle Donne is a captain of the WNBA All-Star Game for the second straight year. This time she'll be facing a team captained by A'ja Wilson.

The WNBA announced the pair as captains Thursday for the All-Star Game in Las Vegas that will be played on July 27.

Delle Donne's team lost to Candace Parker's squad last year in the All-Star contest. The Washington Mystics star led the fan balloting.

Wilson and Delle Donne will select their teams from the other starters chosen by the fans, media and players.

Other frontcourt players include Wilson's teammate in Las Vegas' Liz Cambage, Phoenix's Brittney Griner, Seattle's Natasha Howard and Connecticut's Jonquel Jones.

The four starting guards are Los Angeles' Chelsea Gray, Seattle's Jewell Loyd, Las Vegas' Kayla McBride and New York's Kia Nurse.
