Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm joins four former Huskies and five former WNBA MVPs in headlining the list of 10 players selected by fans, WNBA players and media to start in Verizon WNBA All-Star 2017. Bird ties former IN star Tamika Catchings for most All Star appearances IN league history.

Bird, who is averaging 10.5 points and 6.8 assists per game, will represent her host city, as the All-Star Game will take place at Key Arena in Seattle on Saturday, July 22.

The Western and Eastern Conference starters were announced today, and the Lynx had two players named to the West in center Sylvia Fowles and forward Maya Moore. Rounding out the East's starting five are three first-time All-Stars: Atlanta Dream guard Tiffany Hayes, Connecticut Sun guard Jasmine Thomas and Sun forward Jonquel Jones. Starters were chosen by votes from fans, players and select media members. She was followed by Washington's Elena Delle Donne (31,414), who headlines the Eastern Conference team.

The reserve selections for each team will be determined by the league's 12 coaches on July 18.

Minnesota's Cheryl Reeve will serve as the West head coach and New York's Bill Laimbeer will guide the East after the Lynx and Liberty finished with the best regular-season records in their respective conferences in 2016.

Among those not voted in as starters are league scoring leader Brittney Griner of Phoenix and last year's MVP, Nneka Ogwumike of Los Angeles. No All-Star Game was held in 2016 due to the Summer Olympics.

Jones, Hayes and Thomas, all having the best season of their careers, are the first-timers.

So when the starters were announced Tuesday, it was no surprise that for the eighth time in her career Taurasi made the cut.
