MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As the Minnesota Lynx get ready for the WNBA’s Western Conference Finals, two players were recognized by the league on Wednesday.

Point guard Lindsay Whalen and shooting guard Maya Moore were chosen to the All-WNBA first team as two of the top players in the league. Seimone Augustus was also chosen All-Second team.

It’s the third time in her 10-year career that Whalen, a Hutchinson native, has been chosen All-First Team. It’s the first time Moore has been chosen All-First Team and the fourth time Augustus earned All-Second Team honors.

Whalen is entering the playoffs during one of the best seasons of her career. During the regular season Whalen averaged 14.9 points, 5.9 assists and 6.2 rebounds per game.

Moore finished second in WNBA MVP voting this season after averaging 18.5 points and more than six rebounds per game. Augustus averaged 16.3 points per game during the regular season and shot better than 51 percent from the field.

The Lynx host the Phoenix Mercury in Game 1 of the WNBA’s Western Conference Finals at Target Center Thursday night.
