7/9/2007 - WNBA

NEW YORK -- Second-year players Seimone Augustus, Candice
Dupree and Cappie Pondexter were among the WNBA's All-Star reserves
announced Monday, each earning the honor for the second straight
season.

Augustus, the reigning rookie of the year with Minnesota, is
second in the league in scoring at 22.3 points per game -- trailing
only Seattle's Lauren Jackson (22.6). Dupree is third at 19.5 for
Chicago.

Joining Augustus and Phoenix's Pondexter as reserves for the
Western Conference at Sunday's game in Washington: Sacramento
forward Rebekkah Brunson, Los Angeles center Taj
McWilliams-Franklin, Mercury forward Penny Taylor and Houston
forward Tina Thompson.

Added for the Eastern Conference along with Dupree were: guard
Alana Beard and forward DeLisha Milton-Jones from Washington;
Connecticut guard Katie Douglas and forward Asjha Jones; and
Indiana center Tammy Sutton-Brown.

The New York Liberty, third in the Eastern Conference at 10-8,
are the only team without an All-Star.
