A’ja Wilson continues to make history in the WNBA.
The Aces maintained control of the No. 1 seed in the WNBA playoffs on Saturday with a 103-77 win over Seattle. At the crux of that victory was Wilson, who had 30 points and 10 rebounds in the win.
It’s her fourth game with 30 or more points this season and 11th of her career, making her the Aces’ single-season and career record-holder at that stat. Her double-double was also the 76th of her career, meaning that she’s recorded a double-double in 40 percent of her total career WNBA games.
Her 27th 20-point game was also a new WNBA record, per ESPN Stats & Information. According to Her Hoop Stats, Wilson also set a WNBA record for field goals made with 300 on the season. It’s the first time a player has made 300 field goals in a single WNBA season.
And perhaps Becky Hammon put it best when it comes to putting those stats into perspective.
“She’s got it factor,” Hammon said postgame. “If I have to explain it, you don’t know it.”
