Las Vegas Aces forward A’ja Wilson on pace for a historic season

Wilson is averaging 27.8 points, on pace to be the most in a season in WNBA history. Should she continue at this pace, Wilson would break Taurasi’s record of 25.3 points set in 2006.

Wilson is averaging 11.6 rebounds, which leads the WNBA, and is on pace to be fourth-most in a season in WNBA history. She currently trails only Sylvia Fowles (11.9 in 2018), Jonquel Jones (11.9 in 2017) and Tina Charles (11.7 in 2010).
Wilson ranks second in the WNBA in blocks per game (2.4), behind Ezi Magbegor (2.5). Wilson’s 1.9 steals per game are tied with Seattle Storm forward Nneka Ogwumike for sixth-most in the WNBA.
Wilson has held opponents to 37.3% shooting when she’s the closest defender this season, sixth-lowest in the WNBA (among 58 players to defend at least 100 shots), according to Second Spectrum.
