In her first season with the Chicago Sky, guard Cappie Pondexter has made quite the impact.
In 17 games the 10-year veteran is averaging 16.1 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.4 assists in nearly 31 minutes per game. And late Tuesday night she was rewarded for her stellar play by being named to her seventh career All-Star Game.
She'll join Elena Delle Donne, who last week was named the leading vote-getter for the July 25 game in Connecticut, and head coach Pokey Chatman, who will coach the East team after winning the conference last season.

Pondexter, a Chicago native, was traded to the Sky in February for Epiphany Prince. Pondexter is a two-time WNBA champion, having won with Phoenix in 2007 and 2009. In addition to her six All-Star appearances, Pondexter also played for USA Basketball in 2010, and won gold medals at the 2008 Olympics (Beijing) and 2012 Olympics (London).
With the selection, she joins Tina Thompson as the only players in league history to represent three different teams at the All-Star Game.
At the All-Star break the Sky are 11-6, just 1/2 game behind New York for the top spot in the East.
