Guard Seimone Augustus of the Lynx was named to the all-WNBA first team as was Indiana forward Tamika Catchings. Those two, of course, will play against each other on Wednesday in Game 2 of the WNBA Finals.

Other first team picks were center Tina Charles of Connecticut, forward Candace Parker of Los Angeles and guard Cappie Pondexter of New York.

Forward Maya Moore and point guard Lindsay Whalen of the Lynx were named to the all-WNBA second team. Moore actually got more votes than Augustus, but she finished third among forwards while Augustus was the second-leading vote-getter among guards.
