LSU Forward Angel Reese, one of the most decorated players in LSU Women’s Basketball history, will forgo her final season with the Tigers and enter the WNBA Draft.

She announced the news in an exclusive piece with Vogue Magazine.

 

Reese transferred from Maryland last season and was an instrumental part of the Tigers’ national championship last season.

During her career, she averaged 18.6 points per game and 12.3 rebounds per game.

 

In 2023 Reese was named the  Sporting News Athlete of the Year, BET Sportswoman of the Year, ESPY for Best Breakthrough Athlete, Final Four Most Outstanding Player and First Team All-America (AP, WBCA, USBWA, The Athletic).

In 2024 she was named a finalist for the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year, First-Team All-American (AP and USBWA) and SEC Player of the Year.

Reese also participated in two of the most-viewed Women’s Basketball games of all time; the 2023 National Championship against Iowa which averaged 9.9 million viewers and Monday’s Elite 8 rematch against Iowa which averaged a record 12.3 million viewers.

This season Reese had 27 double-doubles, averaging 18.6 points and 13.4 rebounds. She became the first player in the SEC since Vanderbilt’s Wendy Scholtens from Vanderbilt in 1989 and 1990 to lead the league in both scoring and rebounding over consecutive seasons. She also had 76 assists, 62 steals and 32 blocks. Reese recorded a double-double in each of LSU’s final 16 games. Reese scored 20+ points in 16 games throughout the year and grabbed 15+ rebounds in 13 games, including three games with 20 rebounds. She had one 25/20 game against Texas A&M.

In her two seasons at LSU, Reese has 61 double-doubles which is the second most in program history behind Sylvia Fowles who had 86 in her career. She has recorded seven 20/20 games over the past two seasons.
