LSU's Angel Reese Not With Team for Game vs. Southeastern Louisiana

Angel Reese was not with the LSU women's basketball team during their 73-50 Friday night victory over Southeastern Louisiana.

"You want me to explain why?" head coach Kim Mulkey said after the game. "It's very obvious Angel was not in uniform.

Angel is a part of this basketball team, and we hope to see her sooner than later."

Reese was benched for the second half of LSU's last game, a 109-47 Sunday win over Mississippi Valley State.




When asked Sunday if she could expand on Reese's limited playing time, Mulkey said, "I could, but I won't."

Reese recorded 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting before she was benched Sunday.

Although LSU was a favorite to beat Kent State, the Tigers were only leading by 39-37 at the time Reese was benched.
