NEW YORK -- Phoenix's Diana Taurasi, Seattle's Sue Bird and Indiana's Tamika Catchings have been voted as starters for the WNBA All-Star game again.

Minnesota rookie Maya Moore, the Storm's Swin Cash and injured Los Angeles center Candace Parker joined Taurasi and Bird as starters for the Western Conference announced Thursday night. Moore becomes the first rookie voted to start since Bird and Catchings in 2002.

Catchings was joined by Fever teammate Katie Douglas, Atlanta's Angel McCoughtry, Connecticut's Tina Charles and New York's Cappie Pondexter as East starters.

Taurasi, Bird and Catchings have been selected as starters in every All-Star game that has taken place since they have been in the league.

All-Star reserves will be announced on Tuesday.
