The current WNBA MVP has been shining on the Olympic stage.
Throughout the US women’s basketball team’s first two Olympics, A’ja Wilson is averaging 19.5 points and 11.5 rebounds while shooting 60 percent from the field. The Las Vegas Aces star has fueled the Americans’ dominant inside attack in victories over Nigeria and Japan.
“I mean, looking at USA Basketball’s stretch on the women’s side of the list, Hall of Famers, it’s amazing.” Wilson said. “So for me to be on the list of that, sometimes it affects me, but sometimes I’m like, you know, I’m surrounded by players that are going to make me better and I’m just trying to be a good teammate.”
Team USA will need another big effort from Wilson and his teammates to defeat France, their last opponent in group play.
“France is a team that I know we all respect. We know how good they are and what they can be,” said US team forward Breanna Stewart. “They can turn off the lights, they have dominant pole players, and now [with] Gabby Williams, bringing that versatility, will be a tough game. And it’s going to be physical, it’s going to be routine.
“But for us, I think the most important thing is to get that victory and take it to the quarter-finals.”
