AP Basketball Writer

Chiney and Nneka Ogwumike became the first pair of sisters to be chosen to participate in the WNBA All-Star game on Tuesday night when the league announced the reserves.

The two squared off Sunday for the first time in their careers, with Nneka's Los Angeles Sparks coming away with an easy victory over Chiney's Connecticut Sun. Now they will play against each other again on Saturday in Phoenix.

The other Eastern Conference reserves are New York's Tina Charles, Chicago's Jessica Breland, Atlanta's Erika de Souza, Connecticut's Katie Douglas and Indiana's Briann January.

The Western Conference reserves are Minnesota's Seimone Augustus and Lindsay Whalen, Phoenix's Candice Dupree, Tulsa's Glory Johnson and San Antonio's Danielle Robinson.

While the starters for the game were chosen by the fans, the reserves were picked by the league's coaches.
