A pair of Minnesota Lynx standouts are headed to the WNBA All-Star game as starters this year.

Maya Moore and Seimone Augustus were announced as starters for the Western Conference All-Star team. The game will be played July 25 in Connecticut.

For Moore it will be her fourth appearance in the All-Star game. She has been named an All Star each year since entering the league in 2011.

"It's always a privilege to be voted in by the fans, to be healthy enough to play," Moore told the Star Tribune. "I never want to take it for granted."

Moore is leading the Lynx, averaging 18.3 points per game. She has hit her stride as of late, though, averaging 23.3 points and 8.8 rebounds a game over her last four contests.

FOX Sports North notes that Augustus is making her sixth All-Star appearance – second as a starter. She has made big strides for the Lynx this season. She is averaging 14.9 points while shooting 52.3 percent from the field.

"Every year you get a little older," said Augustus to the Star Tribune. "You see the new group of players, the youngsters, coming on. At some point your time will come to an end and you'll have to pass the torch. Fortunately that time hasn't come for me yet."

WNBA All-Star reserves will be announced on July 21. According to the Star Tribune, both Rebekkah Brunson and Lindsay Whalen have a good chance of being All-Stars.
