New York Liberty center Tina Charles was named to the 2014 All-WNBA Second Team, the WNBA announced on Thursday. Charles earned her fifth-straight All-WNBA honor and second-consecutive nod to the Second Team.

A three-time WNBA All-Star and former league MVP (2012), Charles led the Liberty with 17.4 points and 9.4 rebounds per game. She was the only player in the league to rank in the top five in both scoring (fifth) and rebounding (second). Charles scored in double figures in 28 games, including 13 contests with 20-plus points and two games with 30 or more points. She also posted a team-best 17 double-doubles, which tied for the most in the WNBA.

Charles was named to the All-WNBA First Team in 2011 and 2012, and was selected to the All-WNBA Second Team in 2010, 2013 and 2014.

In honor of being named to the All-WNBA First and Second Teams, each player will receive a Tiffany & Co. designed trophy.  In addition, $10,000 will be awarded to each member of the First Team, while each member of the Second Team will receive $5,000.
