Las Vegas Aces have selected Colorado forward Mya Hollingshed with the No. 8 pick in the 2022 WNBA Draft. A bit of a surprise here in the first round but brings offensive energy the Aces need.

Mya Hollingshed Scouting Report

Hollingshed is coming off her second-best season at the three-point line, where she shot 39.6%. She made 162 three-pointers during her time in Colorado. The Aces are in desperate need to increase their offensive production, especially from the three-point line.

Hollingshed averaged 14.1 PPG last season and shot 42.1% from the field. She led Colorado in points and rebounds in her senior season. She will be a great addition to the offense head coach Becky Hammon is building.
