BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) — A’ja Wilson scored 31 points and her short shot with seven seconds lifted sent the Las Vegas Aces past the New York Liberty on Sunday.

Kia Nurse missed a jump shot after, and out of a timeout following an offensive rebound, the Liberty turned it over to end the game.

Wilson’s game-winner was only the second lead for Las Vegas the entire game.

Wilson shot 10 of 17 from the floor and made 11 of 12 free throws.

Amanda Zahui B. led the Liberty with 20 points.
