The WNBA team starts its second season in Las Vegas on Sunday when it hosts the Los Angeles Sparks at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The program won three National High School Invitational championships and had a run of 11 consecutive appearances in the national tournament halted this year.
A look at the 2019 WNBA schedule for the Las Vegas Aces, who play their home games at Mandalay Bay Events Center.
The Aces finished their first season in Las Vegas with a 14-20 record. They open their second season as the betting favorite to win the league championship.
The NCAA had declared Silvio De Sousa ineligible this past season and next season in early February.
Kawhi Leonard scored 35 points and the Raptors beat the Milwaukee Bucks 105-99 to take a 3-2 lead in the Eastern Conference finals.
The Aces waived second-year wing Jaime Nared and sixth-year center Kelsey Bone on Thursday and will break training camp with 11 players, one shy of the roster limit.
Las Vegas ascended to the 5-2 favorite to claim the WNBA crown after acquiring 6-foot-8-inch center Liz Cambage, last season’s MVP runner-up, from Dallas.
The two-time reigning finals MVP has yet to return to on-court work while recovering from a strained right calf.
The former member of the Fab Five agreed to a five-year deal, which will pay him $2 million in his first year, on Wednesday to lead the Wolverines.
