Crystal Langhorne Named to WNBA All-Star Team

Crystal Langhorne (2004-08) has been named to the WNBA All-Star Team. From the Washington Post story on her accomplishment:
Washington Mystics forward Crystal Langhorne was named to the WNBA all-star team Tuesday after emerging as one of the league's most consistent post players through the first half of the season. In 17 games, Langhorne has averaged a team-high 17 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. [...]

After winning the WNBA's most improved player award in 2009, Langhorne continued to up the ante in 2010 becoming a more efficient shooter (59.2 percent) from a plethora of ranges and a more aggressive rebounder. Her reliable nature remains one of the biggest reasons why the Mystics enter the all-star break at 12-5 and in second place in the Eastern Conference.

"I'm just going out there to enjoy myself and enjoy the experience," Langhorne said. "I know it's going to be the best players in the entire WNBA. Considering the way I started out in the league and the changes that have happened, to a point I guess it is a little surreal to be going."

Congrats to Crystal. Now if Melissa Coleman could just get over whatever's bothering her.
