2014 WNBA All-Star Game: Angel McCoughtry, Shoni Schimmel elected as starters

Danny Wild-USA TODAY Sports

Angel McCoughtry and Shoni Schimmel have been named as starters for the Eastern Conference in the 2014 WNBA All-Star Game scheduled for July 19.

The fans have spoken and the Atlanta Dream will have two players in the Eastern Conference's starting lineup at the 2014 WNBA All-Star Game. Both Angel McCoughtry and rookie Shoni Schimmel were elected as starters by fans and will join Chicago's Elena Delle Donne, Indiana's Tamika Catchings and New York's Cappie Pondexter.

Schimmel led all Eastern Conference guards with 25,601 votes despite not being a regular starter for the Dream. Schimmel has been a valuable contributor off the bench averaging 8.1 points and 3.9 assists. She leads Atlanta with 25 made three-pointers this season.

McCoughtry finished second in East forwards behind Delle Donne with 17,562. She is currently fourth in the WNBA in scoring at 19.8 per game. McCoughtry scored a game-high 22 points in Tuesday's win over the Connecticut Sun.

Dream head coach Michael Cooper and his entire coaching staff will lead the Eastern Squad. Cooper is in his first season with the Dream and has guided the team to a 13-5 start.

The Western Conference starters will include Minnesota forward Maya Moore, Los Angeles forward Candace Parker, Phoenix center Brittany Griner, Phoenix guard Diana Taurasi and Tulsa guard Skylar Diggins. Minnesota's Cheryl Reeve will be the head coach of the West squad.

The reserves will be selected by the 12 WNBA coaches and will be announced on July 15.
