From the bayou to the windy city

Chicago, IL – From the Bayou to the Windy City, Angel Reese makes her presence known
in the big leagues.

LSU Women’s Basketball star player, Reese was picked no.7 overall to the Chicago Sky, in
the recent WNBA Draft.

Reese made her rookie debut on May 15, 2024, against the Dallas Wings. During that game,
she put up impressive numbers and displayed her immediate impact in the league.

Reese had 12 points and 7 rebounds, playing 27 minutes in the Sky’s loss to the Wings. The
Sky fell short to the Wings in an 87-79 loss but, Reese drew the attention of fans across the
country and sparked conversation regarding the bright future of the WNBA.

The 6’3, 165lb, powerhouse is flourishing in her position as a forward for the Sky. Reese
used her size, length, and mobility to face off against league veterans, Teira McCowan and
Kalani Brown, who are known for dominating in the post.

The Sky’s first preseason game emphasized the progress needed to be made for both
Reese and the Sky as an organization. In the first half, Reese was hit by the strength of
WNBA competition, as she went 1-6 from the free-throw line and recorded one point and
one rebound.

Dallas Wings’ guard, Arike Ogunbowale told Clutch Points, “She [Angel Reese] is a great
player on and off the court. . .This is her first game, obviously she has a long career ahead
of her. This is a good start.”

Despite her early game struggles, Reese unveiled her promising potential with the Sky.
Reese was able to finish the game strong as she adjusted aspects of her game to benefit
her team with added points and rebounds.

There is no doubt that the first-round draft pick has an undeniable talent and will continue
to impact and influence the entire league.
