The 5-foot-10 guard averaged 1.1 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.6 assists in first season in Indiana. Wilson also received attention off the court during the Olympic break as she was honored on July 17 in her hometown of Muskogee, Oklahoma for “Aaliyah Wilson Day”. In front of approximately 300 family, friends, former teammates, classmates, coaches and fans along with Mayor Marlon Coleman, Wilson was presented with a key to the city.
