BATON ROUGE, La. – LSU basketball superstar Angel Reese, one of the most famous women’s athletes in the world this side of LSU gymnast Olivia Dunne, is undergoing an “attitude adjustment,” according to a source close to the Tigers’ women’s team.
Reese did not play in the second half of reigning national champion LSU’s last game on Tuesday – a 109-79 win over lightly-regarded Kent State.
LSU led only by 39-37 at halftime. She had 11 points and five rebounds in 13 minutes. But the Final Four MVP from seven months ago and BET Sportswoman of the Year did not play again.
LSU freshman guard Mikaylah Williams then took over the game by scoring 32 points in the second half for a LSU freshman record of 42 points for the game. Could Williams be taking over the team? It is still early.
Amid swirling rumors, LSU coach Kim Mulkey fielded a question at a press conference Thursday about Reese’s status for Friday’s game at Southeastern Louisiana
LSU (3-1) has already struggled to follow its magical 2022-23 season when it finished 34-2 and won the first basketball national championship in the history of the school – men or women.
