A’ja Wilson Makes History That Will Catch Diana Taurasi’s Attention

The WNBA has quickly become a popular league, thanks in large part to the arrival of Caitlin Clark. However, Las Vegas Aces star A’ja Wilson has been a mainstay in the sport for the last half dozen years.

Wilson’s resume is as impressive as can be. She has a pair of WNBA titles, WNBA MVP awards, Defensive Player of the Year honors, five trips to the WNBA All-Star Game, and a WNBA Finals MVP.

On Friday, she tied WNBA legend Diana Taurasi in an impressive feat. Wilson scored 20 or more points for the 13th straight outing, matching the record set by Taurasi.

Wilson finished the game on Friday with 29 points and 11 rebounds on 8-of-20 shooting from the field, albeit in a losing effort as the Seattle Storm got the 78-65 victory in the WNBA Commissioner’s Cup.

A’ja Wilson was the first overall pick in the 2018 WNBA draft and has been nothing short of spectacular since entering the league. Now, she is one 20-point performance away from breaking the record set by Diana Taurasi.

The Aces face Cameron Brink and the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday night at Crypto.com Arena, so that could be the night Wilson makes WNBA history.
