Breaking: Just In LSU Tigers Confirm The Departure Of Another Top Star

At the WNBA Draft, Angel Reese and Kim Mulkey share a touching moment.
With her former coach, Angel Reese welcomed the beginning of her new life.

After being selected as the seventh choice in the 2024 WNBA Draft by the Chicago Sky, Reese exited the stage in tears and was met by LSU coach Kim Mulkey.

After dominating two years together in Baton Rouge, Reese and Mulkey exchanged a heartfelt embrace.
After moving from Maryland, Reese led the Tigers to a national championship in her first year. This year, the team made it to the Elite Eight before Iowa and Caitlin Clark defeated them.

“I was at a loss for what to do.” It goes without saying that I would have loved to return. I, however, demand more of myself. Reese, who still had one year remaining on his LSU college eligibility, declared, “I want to start over.”


Ever since winning the national title, I feel like I’ve been on a high. I wish to sink to the lowest point. I’d like to be a novice once more. I want the vets to take me out. Being a sponge, I want to be able to rise above and develop. Simply put, I can’t wait to play against and with incredible guys. Since I’m a competitive player and this league is really intense, I want to play against lots of other guys.

Reese had a turbulent start to the season after being substituted out of a game against Southeast Louisiana at halftime and missing the following four contests due to the extra attention that winning a national title brought to her and the team.

Mulkey never disclosed the reasons behind Reese’s absence from the squad.

After Reese declared for the WNBA draft, Mulkey said of her, “When she came here, she said she wanted to be here for two seasons and she has lived up to that.” “These past two years have been incredible. We owe Angel Reese a debt of gratitude for her support of this program, which has helped us achieve our first National Championship, as well as for her contributions to our university overall.

She had an influence on the expansion of women’s basketball nationwide in addition to our program. We are excited to see what she does and wish her success as she makes the transition to the WNBA. Although we will miss her, we will always be grateful for the two years we had with her. Always LSU.

After guiding South Carolina to an undefeated season and a national championship this season, Kamilla Cardoso, a former SEC opponent, was selected by the Sky with the third overall pick. Reese, 21, will now play with Cardoso.
