The first voting returns for the WNBA All-Star Game are in, and a few Lynx players are doing well.
Forward Maya Moore has received the third-most votes overall (15,128), trailing only Chicago rookie Elena Delle Donne (16,761) and Los Angeles forward Candace Parker (15,623).
Moore leads the Lynx and is sixth in the league in scoring (17.9 per game) and is second on the Lynx in rebounding (6.9) and assists (3.2).
Meanwhile, Seimone Augustus (9,095 votes) and Lindsay Whalen (6,834) are second and fourth, respectively, among Western Conference guards. Rebekkah Brunson (4,862) is sixth and Janel McCarville (2,064) is 10th among Western Conference frontcourt players.
Connecticut will host the game, which will be held July 27. The starters will be announced July 18 during the nationally-televised game between Phoenix and Los Angeles. Reserves will be named July 23.
Delle Donne, the second overall pick in April’s draft, is in position to become the first rookie to lead the All-Star Game voting.
