Minnesota Lynx forward Maya Moore has earned her second straight WNBA Western Conference Player of the Week award, the league announced Monday.

Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings received the honor for the Eastern Conference for the period from July 14-18, extending her league record to 21 such awards over the course of her career.


Moore, the WNBA's scoring leader this season at 24.1 points per game, racked up 32 points and nine rebounds to lead the Lynx to a 93-82 win over Tulsa on July 16. She followed up with a 24-point performance in the West's 125-124 overtime loss to the East in Sunday's All-Star Game.

Catchings scored the deciding layup for the East in Sunday's victory and came into the All-Star Game off back-to-back 25-point efforts. The 2011 WNBA MVP also averaged 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 steals in the Fever's two games.
