A’ja Wilson has 23 points, 14 rebounds; Aces beat Storm 82-74

Associated Press

BRADENTON, Fla. – A’ja Wilson scored nine of her 23 points in the second quarter as the Las Vegas Aces (10-3) pulled away and beat the WNBA-leading Seattle Storm 82-74 Saturday.

Jackie Young was fouled as she hit a jumper and made the free throw to open the second quarter and spark an 11-2 run that made it 30-20 when Wilson put back a miss by Young with 5:57 left in the first half. The Aces led the rest of the way.

Breanna Stewart led Seattle (11-3) with a season-high 29 points and a career-best 18 rebounds.

Natasha Howard had 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals.

The Storm, who lost 90-84 to the Indiana Fever on Thursday, have lost back-to-back games for the first time this season.
