BRADENTON, Fla. — Aja Wilson had 21 points with 11 rebounds and Dearica Hamby scored 20 and the Las Vegas Aces beat the Atlanta Dream 100-70 on Wednesday night.

Alexis Jones' 3-pointer with seven minutes to go before halftime brought the Dream to 28-26. But Hamby countered with a layup, and her basket triggered a 12-1 run over the next three minutes from which Atlanta never recovered. Lindsay Allen forced a turnover in the backcourt with a steal of Blake Dietrick and converted the layup at the buzzer for a 47-35 lead at intermission. A 30-point third quarter extended the lead to 77-54.
