LSU basketball has suspended Angel Reese reportedly due to a low GPA. The speculation began when Reese was not in uniform and was absent from the bench for the team’s game versus Southeastern Louisiana on Friday.
Head coach Kim Mulkey did not give an official explanation for the All-American’s absence before or after the game.
“Angel was not in uniform. Angel is a part of this basketball team, and we hope she’s back with the team soon. I’m not gonna answer any more than that,” Mulkey told reporters.
Her absence came just three days after she was benched in the second half of a win versus Kent State.
Angel Reese’s mother, Angel Webb Reese, took to Twitter to ask folks not to send her any “long text messages with a bunch of grammatical errors” because it gives her a headache.
She also accused Reese’s mother of being “petty, fake, and hateful”, urging her to take responsibility to her and her daughter’s actions.
Alexis Morris, a member of last year’s national championship team, joined in on the conversation and appeared to back up her former coach, saying “You can’t pay me to bash Kim”.
