Triple title winner Aces title America’s World Cup list


SYDNEY (AP) — Aja Wilson, Chelsea Gray and Kelsey Plum won’t have much time to recover after leading Las Vegas to the franchise’s first WNBA championship.

The trio will board a plane to Australia to help the United States win its fourth consecutive Women’s Basketball World Cup. They’ll be in Las Vegas on Tuesday for a celebratory rally and then take the long flight to Australia. The U.S. opens play against Belgium on Thursday.

The Aces trio will be teammates with Connecticut’s Alyssa Thomas and Briona Jones, who won Sunday’s WNBA Finals. Had they gone to a fifth game in Tuesday’s finals, the list would have looked different.
