July 31, 2019

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Tamera Young scored a season-high 18 points, Dearica Hamby had 18 points and 11 rebounds, and the Las Vegas Aces beat the Dallas Wings 86-54 on Tuesday night.

Las Vegas (14-6), winners of eight of nine games, is tied with Connecticut for the best record in the WNBA. Dallas (5-15) has yet to win a game on the road this season, dropping 16 straight in the regular season dating to last year.

Jackie Young had seven of the Aces’ 27 assists on 30 field goals. A’ja Wilson, averaging 15.4 points and 6.6 rebounds, missed her third straight game with an ankle injury.

Las Vegas center Liz Cambage scored just six points on 1-of-12 shooting against her former team, snapping the longest active WNBA streak of double-figure scoring games at 50. She only played 19 minutes.

Arike Ogunbowale led Dallas with 15 points. Dallas made just six of its first 27 shots and finished the half shooting just 22.2%. The Wings were held to four field goals in the third quarter and trailed 67-38.
