LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

There was a lot of excitement as the WNBA officially announced the San Antonio Stars would become the Las Vegas Aces.    

"I think it's going to be a very exciting time," new Aces head coach Bill Laimbeer said

But few people were as thrilled as Sequioa Holmes.           

"Oh man it's so exciting. Often times I think, 'Is this serious??'" Holmes asked.

It's exciting because the forward, who played last season with the Stars, has a chance to come home.

"It's like a dream come true to be able to play in front of your family and your friends and people who have followed your career since you were a kid," she said.

Holmes is a Las Vegas local, a Mojave High School Grad and a former Lady Rebel, graduating in 2008.

"I love Las Vegas, I'm always talking about it, always representing wherever i go."

Holmes told me the Las Vegas' newest home team gives valley girls an opportunity she never had.

"It's another layer of motivation for them to be able to see a game live; where girls can you know, see for themselves and be more hands on."

It also gives her an opportunity she's always wanted.

"I'm excited, it's going to be fun."
