Bring out the brooms ladies and gentlemen, Las Vegas Aces forward Nia Coffey is heading to the WNBL final. Coffey powered the Adelaide Lightning to a semifinals closeout win over the Melbourne Boomers and Aces teammate Lindsay Allen. The Lightning finished their series against Boomers in picturesque fashion winning two games in a row.
Next week Coffey and the Adelaide Lightning will take on the best team in the WNBL, the University of Canberra Capitals. The loaded Capitals will have home court advantage, the league leader in rebounds, the second and fourth best scorers in the WNBL.
It will be the Lightning’s first trip to the grand final in over 10 years and Coffey’s play has been a huge catalyst for their success. She scored a combined 46 points in the WNBL semifinals the most in the team’s series against the Boomers.
Lindsay Allen was no slouch during their contests. She ended her season on two strong showings totaling 41 combined points and showing a lot of defensive intensity.
The Las Vegas Aces teammates took the WNBL by storm. Allen finishes her season top 10 in points, assists, field goal percentage, and minutes. Totaling a stat line of 18 points 3 rebounds and 5 assists a game.
Coffey is currently in the top 7 in points, rebounds, and blocks. She’s averaging 18 points 8 rebounds 2 assists and 1 block a game while shooting 41% from three. With Coffey starting the WNBL’s Grand Finals on February 9th those averages could increase.
The most interesting take away from their WNBL season’s will be the growth they experienced overseas. Coffey and Allen expanded their leadership roles and all-around games to get their teams deep into the playoffs. There will be a lot to look forward to in Las Vegas this season especially when these two suit up for training camp.
