The WNBA brought it’s annual All Star game and festivities to Vegas this past weekend and everything turned out to be a huge success for the league and for the city. The game was held Saturday at Mandalay Bay Events Center where our hometown team, the Aces, play their home games. The Western Conference All Stars, captained by the Aces A’ja Wilson and coached by Bill Laimbeer, edged the Eastern Conference 129-126. Wilson didn’t play in the game due to a badly sprained ankle, but Aces teammates Kayla McBride and Liz Cambage represented well, with McBride scoring 13 points and Cambage adding eight points and six rebounds. McBride also finished in second place in the Three Point shootout. The Aces return to action tomorrow night at Mandalay Bay against the Dallas Wings. The Aces will be without A’ja Wilson indefinitely as she rehabs her sprained ankle. The Aces went into the All Star break with the best record in the WNBA.
