LAS VEGAS, NV – Thursday marked ten days since Virginia Tech product Aisha Sheppard’s name was called on draft day. She’s hit the ground running in Vegas, and head coach Becky Hammon has noticed.
“Aisha, she’s been somewhat, not that we’re surprised, she can really shoot the ball. I’m a coach that really values shooting, so I love what she’s done in camp,” Hammon said. “A couple times in shooting drills, she’s gone toe-to-toe with some of our best shooters. So for a coach that values threes, she certainly has a soft spot in my heart for sure.”
“When I watched film on her, I was like, this girl makes pro moves right now, this girl makes pro moves. So that’s what caught my eye with Aisha.”
Practice continues for Last Vegas while they get the roster set. Their first preseason game comes on May 1st.
