Las Vegas Aces rookie Jaime Nared had a dominant game for her Israeli club. She dropped 31 points on January 7th as Elitzur Ramla increased their lead against the rest of the league. This is her current professional career high after beating her previous mark of 24 points from the week before.

Nared did it all for her squad on the offensive end. She was efficient from every spot on the floor including going 3-4 from the three-point line and 9-16 inside the arc. She also spread the ball around to the tune of 4 assists. Nared wasn’t shy on the boards either grabbing 5 rebounds and leading the break.

Jaime showed she could get to the line as well chipping in 4 points from her 6 chances at the line. This game has been a part of a four-game streak in which she’s averaged a shade under 24 points a game. That’s a total high enough to lead her team in scoring. On the season, she’s averaging 16 points per game with an incredible three-point shooting 38% percentage.

Jaime has made great strides through the 12 games she’s played for Elitzur Ramla. The team is on pace to win the Israeli league before entering Eurocup play. The team’s season will end on February 11th, 2019. That leaves six more games for Jaime Nared and her team to strengthen their hold on Israeli’s highest division.

If Nared brings half of her current play to the states, the Aces will be a tough team to match up against. She’s playing well with another ball dominant guard in Allisha Gray and showing her all-around game at a high level. Her confidence in her play should only increase from here. Watch out for her as the WNBA returns on May 24th.
