Lindsay Whalen and Maya Moore on Wednesday were named to the All-WNBA First Team. It's the first time since the Lynx became a franchise in 1999 that two Minnesota teammates were both named to the first team. Seimone Augustus was named to the Second Team.
Moore had her best season with the Lynx and finished runner-up to league MVP Candace Parker. Moore averaged 18.5 points per game, good for third in the WNBA. She also became the first player in WNBA history to lead the league in three-pointers and three-point percentage, according to a release by the team.
Whalen, the former Gophers star, had one of her best seasons as a pro. She averaged 14.9 points and her 5.8 assists per game were third in the WNBA.
The Lynx swept Seattle in a best-of-three series to advance to the Western Conference Finals, which begin Thursday at home against the Phoenix Mercury.
