Pair of former UConn stars leading way in WNBA All-Star balloting

The WNBA released the first batch of voting results for next month's WNBA All-Star Game being held in Phoenix.

Former UConn stars Maya Moore and Diana Taurasi are atop the Western Conference list for forwards and guards respectively.

Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky leads all players with 16,542 votes. Moore leads all Western Conference players with 16,509 while Taurasi has 10,487 votes. If voting ended at the time of the early returns the starters for the Eastern Conference would be Shoni Schimmel and Ivory Latta in the backcourt, Delle Donne, Angel McCoughtry and Tamika Catchings (who has not played a game this season due to a back injury). In the Western Conference Moore, Parker and Taurasi would be joined by Seimone Augustus and Brittney Griner.

Fans can vote for up to 10 players per day on WNBA.com, mobile devices, and the WNBA Center Court App presented by Boost Mobile.  Fans also can cast votes on Facebook and Twitter, voting for one player per day using the designated hashtag #WNBABALLOT. Balloting will conclude at midnight ET on Wednesday, July 2.  Starters will be announced on July 8 during the nationally-televised game between Los Angeles and Minnesota while the reserves will be announced during the broadcast of the July 15 game between Los Angeles and Indiana. The game will be played on July 19.
