Las Vegas Aces Celebrate Title and Are Dominating WNBA Once Again
The Las Vegas Aces celebrated last season's championship over the weekend and are looking once again like the team to beat n the league.
The Aces unveiled the championship banner on Saturday before dismantling a short-handed Los Angeles team. An easy win over Minnesota the next day has Las Vegas at 4-0, winning by an average of 24.75 points.
This team has not given me any reasons to think they will not show up on any given night, Aces coach Becky Hammon said. No matter the circumstances, they come to compete, they come to play and they play hard.
The Aces, who now begin a four-game road trip, once again were the top team in the AP WNBA power poll. They were followed by Connecticut, New York, Chicago and Washington. Dallas was sixth with Los Angeles, Phoenix and Atlanta next. Indiana, Seattle and Minnesota round out the rankings.
Jackie Young has been a big reason why Las Vegas has gotten off to a hot start. Young, who was the AP Player of the Week, is averaging 23 points this season. She's shooting 58.5% from behind the 3-point line going 13 for 23.
