Angel Reese LSU Louisiana State University forward Angel Reese (10) smiles after play late during the fourth quarter of the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament game with Ole Miss at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C. Saturday, March 9, 2024.

LSU’s Angel Reese made a name for herself over the past few years playing college basketball. Reese helped lead the TIgers on a memorable run to the National Championship in 2023 and became a star in the process.

After falling short in the Elite Eight earlier this week against Caitlin Clark and Iowa, LSU must regroup. But, as expected, the Tigers will do that without their star player next season.

On Wednesday, Reese officially declared for the 2024 WNBA Draft. This year’s WNBA Draft is one of the most anticipated drafts in league history, and Reese is a crucial reason why.

Reese officially declared with a post on X, the website formerly known as Twitter.

“Grateful for these last four years and excited for this next chapter,” Reese said. “#BAYOUBARBIEOUT,” she finished the post with.

Reese accomplished a lot at LSU and at Maryland, the first stop of her college career. She came away with several honors and distinctions with the Terps before she transferred to the Bayou. Reese kept that momentum going with a fantastic 2022-23 season. She helped the Tigers win the title and was named the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player. She also was named to the All-REgion and All-Tournament team for her efforts. This past season, she won the SEC Player of the Year Award.

The basketball world had much to say over her announcement.
