PHOENIX (AP) - Diana Taurasi has been named the WNBA's most
The Phoenix Mercury star was presented the award at a news conference Tuesday prior to the team's WNBA Finals opener against the Indiana Fever.
Taurasi, a four-time WNBA all-star, led the league in scoring at 23.8 points per game. She and fellow first-team all-star Cappie Pondexter led the high-scoring Mercury to a 23-11 regular season record, best in the WNBA.
A two-time Olympic gold medalist, Taurasi is in her sixth WNBA season after being drafted No. 1 by the Mercury out of Connecticut in 2004.
