Tina Charles
New York Liberty forward Tina Charles (6'4''-C-88, college: Connecticut) was named All-WNBA First Team it was announced today. Charles, who led the league in scoring and rebounding, is the first Liberty player in franchise history to receive 1st Team all-league accolades in consecutive seasons. Charles was named to the All-WNBA First Team for the fourth time in her career after leading the WNBA in scoring (21.5 ppg) and rebounding (9.9 rpg), joining Chamique Holdsclaw (2002) and Lauren Jackson (2007) as the only players to lead the WNBA in both categories in the same season. Charles, who finished second in the MVP balloting, also led the league in double-doubles (20). Joining Charles (193 total points) on the First Team are 2016 MVP Nneka Ogwumike (6'3''-F/C-90, college: Stanford) (195 points) 2014 MVP Maya Moore (6'0''-SG-89, college: Connecticut) of the Minnesota Lynx, a guard who received 34 First Team votes and 185 points; and 2015 MVP Elena Delle Donne (6'5''-G/F-89, college: Delaware) of the Chicago Sky, a forward who earned 27 First Team votes and 162 points. Rounding out the First Team is Sue Bird (5'9''-PG-80, college: Connecticut) of the Seattle Storm, who garnered 19 First Team votes and 128 points.
The Second Team consists of Atlanta Dream forward Angel McCoughtry (6'2''-SF-86, college: Louisville) (122 points), Storm forward Breanna Stewart (6'4''-F-94, college: Connecticut) (117 points), Lynx center Sylvia Fowles (6'6''-C-85, college: LSU) (89 points), Phoenix Mercury guard Diana Taurasi (6'0''-SG-82, college: Connecticut) (86 points) and Storm guard Jewell Loyd (5'10''-G-93, college: Notre Dame) (48 points).
Voting for the All-WNBA First and Second Teams was conducted at the conclusion of the regular season. Players were selected by position and received five points for each First Team vote and three points for each Second Team vote.
Ogwumike, an All-WNBA Second Team pick in 2014, ranked third in the league in scoring (career-high 19.7 ppg) and rebounding (career-high 9.1 rebounds) and second in double-doubles (18). She shot a WNBA-best 66.5 percent from the field, the second-highest mark of all time, and added career highs in assists (3.1 apg) and blocks (1.2 bpg) to go with 1.3 steals in 33 games. A three-time WNBA All-Star, Ogwumike was named Western Conference Player of the Week six times and Western Conference Player of the Month presented by Samsung twice in a season that saw the Sparks race out to a 20-1 start.
Moore, who finished third in the MVP vote, earned her fourth straight selection to the All-WNBA First Team after helping the Lynx set a franchise record for wins (28). The five-time WNBA All-Star finished fifth in the league in scoring (19.3 ppg) and tied for seventh in assists (4.7 apg) while shooting 44.8 percent from the field, including 40.4 percent from three-point range.
Ogwumike and Moore will face one another tonight in Game 3 of the WNBA Finals presented by Verizon when the Sparks host the Lynx (9:00 p.m. ET, ESPN2).
Delle Donne makes her second consecutive appearance on the All-WNBA First team after finishing second in the WNBA in scoring (21.46 ppg) and free throw percentage (93.5). She also averaged 7.0 rebounds, the second best mark of her career, to go with a career-best 1.9 assists.
Bird, a five-time First Team selection, led the league in assists (5.8 apg) for the third time in her career, her highest average since 2010. The 14-year veteran also led the league in total assists with 196 in 34 games, 24 more than the Connecticut Sun's Jasmine Thomas (172). Bird, who won her fourth Olympic gold medal this summer in Rio, added 12.8 points while ranking second in the league in three-point field percentage with a career best 44.4.
