Storm’s Ezi Magbegor named to WNBA 2023 All-Star Roster

 It came as no surprise that Storm forward and budding superstar Ezi Magbegor received her first WNBA all-star nomination.

Magbegor has been selected as one of 12 reserves for the 2023 WNBA All-Star game in Las Vegas as voted on by the league coaches and announced by the WNBA. The all-star game selection follows Magbeor’s 2022 selection on the WNBA second-team defensive squad. The third-year Australian National team member is having a career year, averaging 15.1 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.9 assists, and 1.4 steals per game shooting 50.9% from the field. She has scored in double-figures in 13 of 15 games this season including each of the last seven, recording six double-doubles and shooting 50% or better from the field in 10 games.

Magbegor had 16 points and 16 rebounds in her last outing, a career-high in rebounds and becoming just the fourth Storm player to post those numbers or better in a double-double. She scored 20 points on Tuesday in Minnesota, her third game with 20+ points already this season after collecting four total over the last three seasons combined.

Magbegor joins Storm guard Jewell Loyd at the WNBA All-Star game which will be played on Saturday, July 15, at 5:30 p.m. in Michelob ULTRA Arena in Las Vegas. On Friday, July 14, some of the league’s biggest and brightest stars will display their talents at the 2023 edition of the WNBA Starry 3-Point Contest and Kia WNBA Skills Challenge at 1 p.m.
