Sky rookie Elena Delle Donne has been named one of the two WNBA players of the week for a league-leading fourth time this season.

One player is selected weekly from each conference.

Delle Donne took Eastern Conference honors for a week in which she helped the Sky clinch the first playoff spot in franchise history by averaging 20.0 points and 6.3 rebounds as the team won all three of its games, two on the road.

She is the league’s No. 3 scorer (18.4).

Minnesota’s Maya Moore was the West player of the week for the second time.

The Sky, atop the East with a 20-8 record, next play Saturday against Atlanta at Allstate Arena.
