Pro basketball: Allie Quigley selected for WNBA All-Star game

What a night Tuesday was for Allie Quigley.

The Joliet Catholic Academy graduate and Chicago Sky guard was selected as a reserve for the East team for Saturday's WNBA All-Star game in Seattle. That news was revealed shortly before she finished off a 25-point night as she led the Sky to a 94-83 victory over the Seattle Storm.

Quigley will make her first All-Star game appearance. She has played in 17 games and is averaging a team-best 16.9 points to go with 2.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 32.4 minutes. She is shooting .517 from the field, .444 from 3-point range and .871 from the free throw line, ranking in the top four in the Eastern Conference in scoring and 3-point shooting.

In Tuesday's game, Quigley made 6-of-10 from 3-point range and shot 9-for-16 in all. The two-time WNBA Sixth Woman of the Year (2014 and 2015) is a regular starter for the first time in her nine WNBA seasons. Her 16.9 average is more than five points above her career best, and she is 44-for-99 shooting threes.

Sky forward/center Stefanie Dolson will join Quigley as a reserve for the All-Star game. Dolson is in her first season with the Sky after being acquired from Washington in an offseason trade. She is averaging 14.2 points and 5.8 rebounds.

The WNBA All-Star game will be broadcast live on ABC-TV at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
