CHICAGO — LVFL Candace Parker, who formerly played for the Lady Vols, has been named a starter for the 2022 WNBA All-Star Game in her hometown Chicago, the league announced Wednesday.

The Chicago Sky forward and two-time WNBA champion earned her seventh career All-Star selection, and the game will be played at Wintrust Arena on July 10. A skills competition will be held the day before.

Starters were chosen by a combination of fan, media and player voting.

Breanna Stewart and A'ja Wilson were named co-captains as the highest vote-getters in the WNBA. Sue Bird and Sylvia Fowles will join them as co-captains. Those two announced they would be retiring at the end of the season.

The co-captains will draft their All-Star rosters on July 2.
