After reaching the WNBA Finals on Tuesday, the Las Vegas Aces got more good news. Their center, past CYInterview guest A’ja Wilson [see here] was named the WNBA’s Most Valuable Player for a second time.
Ms. Wilson’s resume includes a national championship in college, while at the University of South Carolina, an Olympic gold medal on Team USA Basketball, the first pick in the 2018 WNBA Draft and now a second WNBA MVP Award. The one achievement Ms. Wilson is missing is a WNBA Championship. She is three wins away from adding that to her CV.
Game one of the WNBA Finals against the Connecticut Sun is Sunday at 3:00 PM Eastern Time.
We remember when we attended one of the first practices for the Las Vegas Aces, in 2018. That was prior to the team ever playing a game. At that time, we CYInterviewed A’ja. She has proven herself to be an exceptional athlete and an inspirational human being.
