Former UConn stars Moore, Charles among top WNBA All-Star vote-getters

Former UConn star Maya Moore is the No. 2 vote-getter among Western Conference players as the WNBA released the first round of voting for the WNBA All-Star Game which is being played at Mohegan Sun Arena on July 25.

Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock, who recently suffered a season-ending knee injury, leads all players with 11,099 votes followed by the Chicago Sky's Elena Delle Donne, who has 10,589 votes.

If this happened to be the final voting numbers, Delle Donne, the Atlanta Dream's Shoni Schimmel and Angle McCoughtry, Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever and former UConn star Tina Charles would start for the Eastern Conference while Diggs, Moore, Seimone Augustus of Minnesota and the Phoenix Mercury duo of Brittney Griner and Candice Dupree would be the starters.
