With the WNBA All-Star Break fast approaching, it’s time to start wondering if any of the Dallas Wings players have a shot to be selected. 

Last year the Wings sent two all-stars to Vegas to take on the USWNT in the all-star game. Arike Ogunbowale went on to be the MVP of that game scoring 26 points and leading the WNBA all-stars to a 93-85 win over the U.S national team. 

Satou Sabally would also join her at the game, putting up three rebounds in just 8 minutes of action. 

The starters for the game were already announced and no Wings players made the cut.

That pool of players included 

Sue Bird 

Sylvia Fowles

Sabrina Ionescu

Jonquel Jones

Nneka Ogwumike

Candace Parker

Kelsey Plum

Breanna Stewart

A’ja Wilson 

Jackie Young 

However, the reserves will be announced on Tuesday. So, let’s break it down and see which Dallas Wings players have a chance to be selected. 

Arike Ogunbowale – Arike Ogunbowale is someone who probably should have been an all-star starter. Ogunbowale is averaging 19.5 points per game on the season. Arike has 11 twenty-point games this season. 

Allisha Gray – WIth people like Satou Sabally and Marina Mabery missing a lot of time this season, Allisha Gray has really emerged as the Wings’ second-best player. Gray is averaging 14.5 points 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists this season. Unfortunately, those numbers probably are not all-star numbers.

Marina Mabery – The only other person I could see with a chance at a miracle for getting into the game is Marina Mabery. However, she is only averaging 13.1 points per game with 3.2 assists and 3.2 rebounds and that is just not an all-star season.

All more than likely Arike Ogunbowale will be the Wings’ only all-star this season. No one else on the team is having an all-star season. 

However, it will be fun to see what Arike can do in the all-star game, after all, she did win the MVP last year.
