The Aces earned a spot in the 2019 WNBA semifinals in style.
It was an all-out battle Sunday evening between Las Vegas and the Chicago Sky as the two squads vied for the last spot in the third round. The Sky entered the final moments of the game with a slight 93-92 lead over the Aces, but Las Vegas forward (and this year’s Sixth Woman of the Year Award winner) Dearica Hamby managed to sink one last shot with just 4.7 seconds left on the clock.
