Wilson 0-3 4 minutes into the game. She's gonna shoot them out of this one just like the last game.

I love seeing Collier and Wilson covering each other. Collier gives up 3-4 inches but no strength or cussedness.

Really been noticing lately, Fowles is able to clobber opposing players with impunity, refs won't call anything on her.

Good game so far, back and forth, both teams red hot.

Williams and Young both playing very well today. Aces pulling away w/ Wilson sitting on the bench for a while.

Okay, I've been harping on Wilson. She got herself going after re-entering the game.

Q2 has been all Aces.

Someone mentioned the other day that Powers could get you into or out of a game. Tonight is definitely out. Several quick missed shots, and just an offensive foul. Half of Minnesota's turnovers, too.

Williams and Young such physical guards. Dangerfield in a grinder.

Wilson w/ 3 quick misses to start Q3 while Young is scoring at will. Aces have a lot of talent, they really don't need A'ja to be as ball dominant as she is. On the season she's leading the team in FGA by a wide margin, I think they'd be much better served spreading that around some more.

Wilson has been really hot and cold. Young continues to be hot. 25 on 12-17 shooting. Powers has heated up in the 2nd half.

Minnesota trying to make it interesting.

My goodness these refs are ludicrously inconsistent on what is and isn't a foul. Just completely nonsensical.

Never mind. 17 point lead was cut to 9 for a second, but ballooned back to 20, biggest margin of the game. 3+ minutes left. This is a big win for Vegas for trying to hold onto that #2 seed.

Career high 29 for Young on 14-19 shooting, also 10 rebounds. Have yourself a game. Gray w/ a career high 14 assists.

Very disappointing. Best bet is to get Cambage back so she can mess up their chemistry. ;):rolleyes:

Missing Cambage AND Hamby was pretty rough. Dearica was back tonight and had a nice game.

Riquna Williams now averaging 9.9 ppg. If she can bump that just a teeny bit, Aces will have 7 averaging double figures. From there it drops to almost nil, Park averaging 2.0 ppg.

That's a professional career high (Her career high was in an NCAA semifinal game against a team with a dog for a nickname.... ;) )

Happy for her. Had her share of ridicule when she did not immediately live up to overall #1. Love stories where players slowly figure it out

No surprise, Minnesota is running away from Indiana. Taking out their frustrations after the beat down they got from Las Vegas.

Charles moved to #2 on the career rebounding list.
