East All Stars vs. West All Stars – Recap – July 23, 2011 – ESPN

SAN ANTONIO — Cappie Pondexter scored 17 points and Katie Douglas hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 56.7 seconds left, helping the East All-Stars hang on to beat the West in one of the closest WNBA midseason showcases in history, 118-113 on Saturday.

Douglas, the Indiana Fever guard, finished with 15 points and helped the East win just its third All-Star game in 10 tries — and third in the last four. Connecticut Sun center Tina Charles also had 15 points for the East and headlined a record 10 first-time All-Stars in this year’s game.

Swin Cash led the West with 21 points and 12 rebounds and was named MVP for the second time. Former WNBA star Lisa Leslie is the only other player with multiple All-Star MVP awards.

Cash, the Seattle Storm‘a four-time All-Star, was also named MVP in 2009.
