NEW YORK (AP) -

Diana Taurasi has tied Lisa Leslie with a record eighth appearance on the All-WNBA team.

Taurasi was also on the team in 2004 and from 2006-2011. She averaged 20.3 points and 6.2 assists to get Phoenix back to the Western Conference finals, where it will face Minnesota and fellow first-team members Maya Moore and Lindsay Whalen.

Chicago center Sylvia Fowles is the league's leading vote-getter, while WNBA MVP Candace Parker rounds out the squad announced Wednesday. The Los Angeles Sparks forward is the only member of the group who was on the first team last season.

Rookie of the year Elena Delle Donne of Chicago made the second team.

Voting was done by a national panel of media and broadcasters.
