Lynx forward Maya Moore and point guard Lindsay Whalen were named to the All-WNBA first team Wednesday, while shooting guard Seimone Augustus was named to the second team.

It was Whalen’s third such honor; she was a first-team pick in 2008 and 2011, too. Whalen and Moore were both on the second team last season. Augustus, a first-teamer last year, has been named to the second team four times now.

“When you make the first or second team you’re in really good company,” Lynx coach Cheryl Reeve said.

Others on the first team were Los Angeles forward Candace Parker, Phoenix guard Diana Taurasi and Chicago center Sylvia Fowles.

Moore, who finished second in the MVP race to Parker, finished third in the league in scoring (18.5), sixth in steals (1.74), 15th in rebounds (6.2) and 17th in assists (3.0).

“I tend not to focus on the things I can’t control during the season, which mostly include the awards, but it’s still an absolute honor,” Moore said.

Whalen averaged a career high in scoring (14.9), shot 48.6 percent from the field, was third in the league in assists (5.8) and her rebounding average (4.5) placed her third among guards. Augustus was ninth in scoring (16.3) and seventh in field goal percentage (51.6).
