Two Washington Mystics, Elena Delle Donne and Kristi Toliver, have been chosen for the 2018 WNBA All-Star Game.

Additionally, Delle Donne was named as one of two team captains for the game, to be played on July 28 in Minneapolis.

Delle Donne is fourth in the league in scoring with 20.6 points per game. She’s also averaging 6.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. The 2015 league MVP will play in her fifth All-Star Game.



Toliver, a guard, is scoring 14 points per game along with 4.2 assists and 2.1 boards per game. It will be the second All-Star Game in her 10-year career.

“It feels so good to be back on this stage with the league’s best players,” Toliver said via a Mystics press release. “I set out this offseason to get myself back to this level and knowing my discipline and work ethic paid off is very special to me.”

“I am looking forward to competing in this year’s All-Star game. I am humbled by the support of the fans and I look forward to representing the Mystics in Minneapolis,” Delle Donne said.
