July 29: Nikki Teasley, Los Angeles Sparks
Los Angeles point guard Nikki Teasley is putting together an impressive sophomore season.

The 6-0 guard from the University of North Carolina currently ranks third in the WNBA in assists, averaging 6.5 per game.

Teasley's contributions are not limited to assists alone. She is also averaging 11.1 points and 5.0 rebounds per game for the first-place Sparks and helping the two-time defending champions stay on track while teammate Lisa Leslie is on the injured list with a bruised knee.

Though only in her second season, Teasley is no stranger to the spotlight. She hit the game- and series-winning shot for the Sparks at the 2002 WNBA Finals last year, and was voted the MVP of the 2003 WNBA All-Star Game as she posted six assists, six rebounds and 10 points to help lead the Western Conference to victory. It was Teasley's first All-Star appearance.
