While Pondexter's success is not entirely surprising, her immediate impact on the next level has taken the league by storm. Pondexter is averaging 21.9 points per game, good enough to place her third in the league. Pondexter, the 2006 BIG EAST Player of the Year, will join Seattle's Bird and teammate Taurasi on the Western Conference roster.
