Locked on Women’s Basketball: Are the Las Vegas Aces unstoppable?
Howard and Matthew discuss all things Las Vegas Aces
It’s time for another episode of the Locked on Women’s Basketball podcast. This episode features host Howard Megdal and beat reporter for the Las Vegas Aces Matthew Walter. The fellas discuss all things Las Vegas Aces.
Matthew talks about who Kelsey Plum is as a person and player:
“She describes herself as a dog and I put it with a, “WG” instead of [D O G] like she’s a dog at heart, which to me means, she’s going to go out there and do what she needs to do. And play at the level she plays at no matter whether they’re up 20, down 20 whatever the game is. And it’s shown through the first 12 games of this season so far for the Aces.”

Plum is the leading scorer on the Aces; however, she is not the number one option. Matthew speaks more on this:
“I don’t think this offense has a number one option. I think that the way that their offense runs, I don’t think they’ve had consecutive games with the same leading scorer. Every game there’s been somebody different from the previous game, who leads them in scoring because they have the ability, where all five of the people on the floor with the spacing and the way they attack the basket can score.”
