Augustus & Fowles Named 2018 WNBA All-Stars

Moore, Fowles, and Augustus Named WNBA All-Stars

Borrowing a format used earlier this year by the National Basketball Association, teams will be named for captains rather than conferences with the inaugural matchup using this method being between Team Delle Donne, for Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne, and Team Parker for Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks. The teams they choose will be announced at the start of Thursday's 8 p.m. ET game on ESPN2, when Delle Donne's Mystics face Dallas. This will be the fifteenth annual All-Star Game played by the league. She's also averaging a league-best 11.9 rebounds per game.

The Storm will send three players to next Saturday's WNBA All-Star Game, including Sue Bird who will make her league-record 11th appearance.

Bird is averaging a career-best 7.1 assists, which ranks second in the WNBA, and 9.7 points. However, Moore told the league that she'll play in the game, but will not serve as a captain whose primary duty includes drafting a team.

Loyd sat courtside during the All-Star Game at KeyArena in 2017 and didn't hide her desire to be recognized as one of the league's greatest stars.

Trump Slams Interest Rate Hikes, Ignoring Hands-Off Tradition Toward Fed
If the Fed moves too aggressively, however, it could curb economic activity so severely that it helps to provoke a recession. Last month, the Fed raised its benchmark rate for a second time this year and projected two more increases in 2018.

Parker and Delle Donne will draft players from the 20 other All-Stars who were announced Tuesday.

One likely candidate for starting guard is Toliver, who joins Delle Donne in the second all-star selection of her career. Fans cast 44 percent more votes than they did previous year (873,437 vs. 604,680). Players and coaches were not allowed to vote for those on their own WNBA teams.

She is one of 22 players selected as an all-star by fans, WNBA players and head coaches, and media. Team Delle Donne will be coached by Seattle's Dan Hughes and Team Parker by Phoenix's Sandy Brondello. Every team had at least one player on the list except last-place Indiana. She hit the mark in three fewer games than both Seimone Augustus and Diana Taurasi.
