Las Vegas Aces superstar A’ja Wilson made history on Sunday, becoming the franchise’s all-time leading scorer in a comfortable win against the Dallas Wings at home.

Record-Breaking Performance

The two-time WNBA MVP scored 28 points in the 104-85 victory, bringing her Aces total to 4,301 points. This achievement surpassed Sophia Young-Malcolm’s previous record of 4,300 points. Wilson also recorded 10 rebounds, earning her 11th double-double of the season in this milestone game at the Michelob Ultra Arena.

Wilson, who was drafted by Las Vegas first overall in 2018, broke the record by knocking down two free throws late in the fourth quarter.

“It means the world, it really does,” Wilson told ESPN after the game. “It’s a special moment. I didn’t even know, honestly, until about the third quarter. Sydney [Colson] actually told me, she was like, ‘Come on, this is your chance, you don’t want to do it away, you want to do it at home.’ And I was like, ‘That is right.’

“So I’m so grateful to have this moment, my teammates sharing it with me, this crowd sharing it with me. But the job’s not done. We still got a lot more we gotta learn and grow from, but I’m definitely gonna take in this moment.”

Celebrating the Achievement

Young-Malcolm scored all of her points between 2006 and 2015 while the organization was still operating under the San Antonio (Silver) Stars moniker, before its 2017 relocation to Las Vegas. The team, one of the eight original WNBA teams, joined the league’s inaugural 1997 season and played in Salt Lake City as the Utah Starzz until 2002.

The Aces honored Wilson’s achievement postgame by bringing stars from the franchise’s history, including Young-Malcolm, onto the court.

“It’s all about growing the game,” said Wilson. “They laid the foundations down for us to be able to wear this uniform today. Even though it’s maybe a different color, a different city, they are the foundations so to do this in front of them, it truly is something special.”

Dominant Season

Wilson is having a dominant season, averaging a league-leading 27 points per game and is in contention to win her third MVP award. She is also aiming to complete a historic three-peat with Las Vegas, having won the WNBA championship in both 2022 and 2023.

Game Highlights

The lopsided win moves the Aces to a 13-7 record this season. Kelsey Plum scored 23 points to help power Vegas to victory, while fellow All-Stars Jackie Young and Chelsea Gray added 18 and 12 points respectively.

Odyssey Sims dropped a season-high 25 points for the Wings, who fall to 5-17 and are tied for the worst record in the league with the Washington Mystics.

Dallas ended the game with a better field goal percentage than the Aces but were outshot six to 14 from three-point range.(Superace88)
