Speakers 2024

Las Vegas Aces President Nikki Fargas announced on December 31, 2021 that the team hired San Antonio Spurs assistant coach, and six-time WNBA All-Star Becky Hammon as the team’s new head coach. And it didn’t take long for that to pay dividends as the 16-year pro led Las Vegas to its first major professional sports championship, and the franchise’s first title in its 26year history.

Along the way, Hammon was named the WNBA’s Coach of the Year, while leading the Aces to the best record in the league. Las Vegas also won the Commissioner’s Cup Championship during the 2022 regular season and placed four players in the WNBA All-Star Game.

Hammon played 16 seasons in the WNBA including her final eight in San Antonio, where she led the franchise to its first finals appearance in 2008.
