AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - Elena Delle Donne is the leading vote-getter for the WNBA All-Star Game.

The league's leading scorer will be joined on the Eastern Conference team by Indiana's Tamika Catchings, who will be playing in a record 10th All-Star Game. New York's Tina Charles is the third member of the front court on the east team announced Tuesday.

Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry and Shoni Schimmel will start in the backcourt. Schimmel became just the third reserve to start an All-Star Game last season and she went on to win MVP honors of that contest.

Tulsa guard Skylar Diggins leads the West All-Stars. Diggins, who tore her ACL a few weeks ago and will miss the game, is joined by Minnesota's Seimone Augustus in the backcourt. Maya Moore of Minnesota, Brittney Griner and Candice Dupree of Phoenix will start in the front court.
