The WNBA has released its All Defensive First and Second Team selections.  These selections are determined by the 12 WNBA head coaches.  No coach is allowed to vote for his or her own players.

The Atlanta Dream had two players named to the All-Defensive First Team in Sancho Lyttle and Angel McCoughtry.  Leading all selections for All-Defensive Team was Brittney Griner, who received 55 total points.  (Griner was also the choice for Defensive Player of the Year by sportswriters.)
