Vegas lights up for WNBA's arrival


LAS VEGAS -- Moriah Jefferson had never been to Las Vegas until this weekend. Now she will call it home.
Jefferson, point guard for the San Antonio Stars the past two seasons, is now a member of the recently relocated and newly named Las Vegas Aces. The WNBA franchise, which was bought by MGM Resorts International from Spurs Sports and Entertainment in October, made it official on Monday with a grand ceremony at the House of Blues inside Mandalay Bay, complete with representatives from the league, the new ownership group, and the team, alongside a glitzy video production featuring Cirque du Soleil and confetti to unveil the new nickname and logo.
"Everything is just so big. I'm getting used to the atmosphere and all the lights and just how big everything is," Jefferson said. "Today was just amazing. The video, the logo, the team name. Everybody was just on top of everything. I think this is going to be a good opportunity and a good fan base for us."
