Snow is ranked 42nd in scoring in the league while Appel is not even in the top 50.

Scoring leaders:

  1. Diana Taurasi, PHO – 21.4
  2. Angel McCoughtry, ATL – 20.8
  3. Candace Parker, LAS – 20.6
  4. Lauren Jackson, SEA -20.4
  5. Cappie Pondexter, NYL -20.3

The Connecticut Sun will host the event at Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, July 10 and ESPN will televise it nationally at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Fans vote in person at WNBA arenas and at the NBA Store.  Fans can also vote online through June 21 at WNBA.com. A write-in option is also available, allowing fans to choose players not listed on the ballot.  The 10 players who receive the most votes will be guaranteed a position on the team rosters.  Unlike previous years, the players selected by fans will not necessarily be starters.  Any player voted in who is already in the USA National Team Pool will play on the USA Basketball team, led by head coach Geno Auriemma, while the remaining players who have been voted in by the fans will play on the WNBA team.
