The Las Vegas Aces opened training camp this past Sunday with a singular focus on winning the WNBA championship this season. The Aces made the finals last season but were swept in three games by Seattle. Most preseason publications and rankings have the Aces as the team to beat and head coach Bill Laimbeer knows that his teams will get every opponents best shot in every game. The Aces will benefit from the return of center Liz Cambage who sat out last season due to health reasons, and guard Kelsey Plum who missed the season with an Achilles injury. Forward Dearica Hamby has recovered from the knee injury she suffered in the semifinals last season and A’ja Wilson is expected to continue her stellar play. Guard Kayla McBride signed with Minnesota but the Aces signed guards Chelsea Gray and Riquna Williams. The Aces will play two exhibition games against Los Angeles with first game this Sunday at noon at the Aces home court, Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay. No fans will be allowed for the game. Vegas opens the regular season on Saturday, May 15 in Seattle against the defending champion Storm.
