  • LSU star Angel Reese says she’s dealt with death threats and more since winning a national title last year.
  • Reese opened up about her experience after Monday’s Elite Eight loss to Iowa: “I’ve seen so much. I’ve been attacked so many times, death threats, I’ve been sexualized, I’ve been threatened, I’ve been so many things, and I’ve stood strong every single time.”
  • Reese insisted she “still wouldn’t change anything” and will remain “unapologetically me.”
  • Reese has a big decision to make this week – she has until Wednesday to announce whether she’ll return to LSU or enter the WNBA draft.
  • Has Reese been unfairly cast as a ‘villain’ in women’s college basketball?  Should she return to LSU or go pro?

UPDATE…

  • Angel Reese will be continuing her rivalry with Caitlin Clark in the WNBA.
  • In a new interview with Vogue, the LSU star announced she would enter the 2024 WNBA draft.
  • Reese won a national title with LSU in 2023 and had one of the highest NIL valuations in college sports at $1.8 million.
  • Why leave all that for the WNBA?  She told Vogue “I want to start at the bottom again… I want to be a rookie again and build myself back up”.
  • How high do you think Reese will be drafted?  Will she be able to make as much money in the WNBA as she makes in college?
