The 2018 Las Vegas Aces roster began taking shape back in 2014 when San Antonio selected Kayla McBride (pictured) with the third overall pick in the WNBA Draft.
The 5-11 guard led Notre Dame to four consecutive fine fours, and she has led San Antonio in scoring in each of her four years in the league, McBride was named to the WNBA All-Star team in 2015 after averaging 13.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game, while connecting on 37.3 percent of her shots from three-point range.
The following season, she averaged 17.1 points per game, but injuries limited her to just 17 games. She bounced back a year ago to average 15.4 points, a career-high 4.1 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. She also drained 92.5 percent of her free throws on the year.
In the second round, the Silver Stars selected Astou Ndour from Spain. The 6-6 center played in eight games as a rookie, but in 2016 she became a key reserve for the team, averaging 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds per game. San Antonio traded Ndour to Chicago in February of 2017, but she has since opted to remain playing overseas rather than return to the WNBA.
The Silver Stars took Missouri’s Bri Kulas with their third round pick of the 2014 WNBA Draft. The 6-1 forward was a First-Team, All-SEC selection as a senior, but was waived prior to the start of the regular season.
