The Las Vegas Aces defeated the Indiana Fever and Kate Martin scored a personal-high 12 points, making two 3-pointers, a three-point play and three free throws on one foul.

Although Caitlin Clark had been hyped to take the basketball world by a storm, A’ja Wilson was the impressive one.

She showed Saturday night why she is arguably the league’s best current player with 29 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Las Vegas Aces to a 99-80 win over the Indiana Fever.

Clark scored eight points on 2-of-8 shooting (2 of 5 from the 3-point line) and had seven assists and five rebounds to go with six turnovers. It was the fewest points for Clark, who entered the game averaging 16.7 points. 

Kelsey Mitchell led Indiana (1-6) with 16 points, Temi Fagbenle had 13 and Aliyah Boston and Lexie Hull each finished with 12.

Wilson, a two-time league MVP, made 12 of 18 shots. Also for the Aces (3-1), Jackie Young scored 22 points and Kelsey Plum 20. Rookie Kate Martin, 

Clark was one of five No. 1 draft picks in this game along with teammate Boston and Las Vegas’ Wilson, Plum and Young. 

Also, the top four scorers in NCAA history — Clark, Plum, Las Vegas’ Dyaisha Fair and Mitchell — played in this game.

The game was played before an announced sellout crowd of 10,399, but short of the Aces’ record at Michelob Ultra Arena. Las Vegas drew 10,419 for this season’s opener against the Phoenix Mercury when the Aces raised their second championship banner in a row.

However, the Fever players were definitely worn-out. This was Indiana’s seventh game in 12 days and third in four. 

It also was the Fever’s fifth road game as well as their fifth game overall against a team that competed in either of the past WNBA Finals. However the Aces were playing their Fourth game of the season.
