Washington Mystics star Elena Delle Donne leads the WNBA in All-Star fan voting, the league announced Tuesday.

Delle Donne garnered 20,337 votes ahead of the league’s deadline for voting, which ends next week. Starters and captains will be revealed on July 11. 

Fans account for 50% of the vote to determine the All-Star Game’s 10 starters. This year’s game will take place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on July 27. The remaining 50% of the votes are split between the media and players. 

Delle Donne has helped the Mystics get off to a soaring 9-3 record, which leads the NBA. The 2015 MVP is averaging 17.2 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season. 

Besides Delle Donne, Washington’s Kristi Toliver and Natasha Cloud also made the list of top vote-getters with 6,859 and 6,173 votes, respectively.
