Further details around in-game entertainment and the full schedule of weekend events will be announced at a later date.
Las Vegas had two players named to the All-Star Team in its inaugural season – forward and reigning Rookie of the Year A’ja Wilson, and five-year guard Kayla McBride. Wilson scored 18 points, and grabbed five rebounds in her All-Star debut, while McBride added 11 points and four boards in her second trip to the mid-summer classic.
McBride also battled the Chicago Sky’s Allie Quigley and four other competitors in last year’s Three-Point Contest. The Aces star netted a first-round best 22 points to advance to the finals against Quigley. After both sharpshooters recorded 18 points to force a tie-breaker, Quigley edged out McBride to win with a record-setting 29-point effort, which even bested the NBA record of 28 points in a round set by the Phoenix Sun’s Devin Booker in the 2018 NBA All-Star Game.
