Today is the beginning of a new WNBA season. The professional women’s basketball league is celebrating its 26th year.

The Aces will have past WNBA MVP, Olympic Gold Medalist and past CYInterview guest A’ja Wilson [see here] back in this year’s starting lineup.
Additionally, the team has a new head coach, Becky Hammon. Prior to coming to Las Vegas, Ms. Hammon was an assistant coach for the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs.
