OVERVIEW

Aerial Powers was acquired by the Mystics on July 23rd in exchange for Tayler Hill and a 2019 second round draft pick. Powers provided a spark off the bench late in the regular season as the team fought for postseason seeding. She also appeared in all nine Playoff games, including a game-high 18-point, eight-rebound performance in a Game 3 of the WNBA Semifinals against the Dream.

 

NOTABLE ACHIEVEMENTS

  • Scored 10+ points twice in her nine regular season games with the Mystics.
  • Led the team in rebounds once, grabbing six boards in an August 5 win over the Dallas Wings.
  • Appeared in all nine of Washington’s postseason games.
  • Ranked fourth on the team in offensive rebounds (12) and T-3rd in blocks (3) during the 2018 postseason.

 

KEY PERFORMANCES

  • August 31 vs. Atlanta – In Game 3 of Washington’s postseason series with Atlanta, Powers scored a season- and team-high 18 points off the bench to go along with eight rebounds and three assists. Powers also added a steal and a block was a +9 in 22 minutes of play.
  • August 17 vs. Los Angeles – In the Mystics’ final home game of the season, a buzzer-beating win over the Sparks, Powers recorded her first double-double in a Mystics uniform (10 points, 10 rebounds) and converted on a season-high two 3-point field goals. Powers managed the double-double in just 17 minutes of play.
  • July 31 at Atlanta – In Powers’ second game with the Mystics, a road matchup with the Dream, the versatile forward tallied 10 points and six rebounds, shooting 3-6 (.500) from the field, 2-2 (1.000) from 3-point range and 2-2 (1.000) from the free-throw line.
