Kelsey Plum knocks down the dagger for the Aces (0:28)

Kelsey Plum has ice in her veins as she drills the dagger to give the Aces a 6-point lead with under a minute left in regulation. (0:28)

That's WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces to you.

The Aces used a 78-71 Game 4 win over the Connecticut Sun to claim their first title in franchise history. The Aces had no shortage of star power on the court -- A'ja Wilson is the reigning league MVP -- or on the sideline -- rookie head coach Becky Hammon was named Coach of the Year.

With the victory, the Aces became the first Las Vegas professional sports franchise to win a championship. Hammon also became the first rookie coach to win a WNBA title in her debut season. But that's not all: According to ESPN Stats & Information research, Wilson & Co. are also just the fourth team in league history to win MVP, Coach of the Year and hoist the trophy all in the same season. The last team to accomplish the feat? The Seattle Storm in 2010 with some athlete named Sue Bird.

As Wilson, WNBA Finals MVP Chelsea Gray, Kelsey Plum and their teammates celebrated their hard-earned victory, the sports world took to social media to congratulate them on their title.
