The WNBA announced Tuesday that Las Vegas Aces forward A’ja Wilson and Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese are the WNBA’s Players of the Week.

For the Western Conference, Wilson brings home her third Player of the Week honor this season and 19th in her sixth year in the league. 

The two-time WNBA Champion averaged 25.2 points per game, 9.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists in the Aces matchups this week and put up an imposing 35 points, 12 rebounds and 3 assists despite the Aces’ 98-93 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Sparks.

Since the start of the season, Wilson has averaged 27.0 points per game, 10.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 2.7 blocks and 1.8 steals per game. Her impressive stat line places her first overall in points per game, first in blocks per game and second in rebounds per game, behind fellow POTW, Reese.

In the Eastern Conference, Reese takes home the honor after tallying her 13th consecutive double-double, officially surpassing WNBA legend Candice Parker’s double-double record.

Reese also became the first rookie this season to win POTW as she looks to secure Rookie of the Year honors.

In the Sky’s games this week, Reese averaged 16.8 points per game, 14.0 rebounds per game and 1.2 assists per game. 

July 5 against the Seattle Storm, Reese put up 27 points, 10 rebounds and 4 steals in the Sky’s 88-84 win. In the same game, Reese went 2/2 from the three-point line and shot 61.5% from the field. 

Reese and the Sky will welcome the Atlanta Dream to Wintrust Arena Wednesday, July 10 with tipoff beginning at 12 P.M. while Wilson and the Aces take on the Storm in Seattle July 10 at 3 P.M. ET. Both games will be available for streaming with WNBA League Pass.
