Caitlin Clark Second In WNBA All-Star Voting

Caitlin Clark is starting to pick up steam as a WNBA player and not surprisingly her fans are stuffing the ballot box.

Clark is currently second in the league's All-Star voting, with the first round of results released Friday. The Indiana Fever rookie sensation trails only the Las Vegas Aces' A'ja Wilson, the WNBA's scoring and rebounding leader.

Interestingly, Clark's teammate, second-year forward/center Aliyah Boston is third in the voting. So despite the early struggles, the Fever have three of the top vote-getters. They are also showing marked signs of improvement.

"Wilson, a two-time MVP who leads the WNBA in scoring (27.9 PPG) and rebounding (11.3 RPG), has 217,773 votes," wrote Michael Voepel of ESPN. "Clark, the 2024 No. 1 draft pick who ranks third in the league in assists (6.2 APG), is second with 216,427 votes. Boston, last season's top draft pick and Rookie of the Year, is third with 171,864 votes."

Chicago Sky rookie Angel Reese is also in the top 10.

"Rounding out the top five are two-time MVP Breanna Stewart of the New York Liberty (151,984 votes) and the Dallas Wings' Arike Ogunbowale (130,838), who is second in the WNBA in scoring (25.4 PPG)," Voepel wrote. "The next five in voting are the Liberty's Sabrina Ionescu (118,949), Reese (118,490), the Aces' Kelsey Plum (117,217), the Minnesota Lynx's Napheesa Collier (103,550) and the Los Angeles Sparks' Dearica Hamby (97,094)."

The WNBA All-Star Game is set for July 20 in Phoenix. It will pit Team WNBA vs. Team USA, or the five players that are set to go to the Olympics in Paris this summer.

WNBA All-Stars are selected by a combination of voting from fans (50%), current WNBA players (25%) and media (25%). If it were strictly fans, Clark would likely be way ahead of the rest of the field.
