LSU Angel Reese : Angel Reese is entering her final year of college basketball at LSU but already wants to play in the WNBA. Harper’s Bazaar reported that this 21-year-old court star has two goals. After graduating from LSU, she aspires to play WNBA and walk the lines. She stated, “The fact that female basketball players are also interested in modeling is still a new territory for many.”
She thinks the WNBA will grow to accommodate fresh rookies like her and Iowa’s outstanding Caitlin Clark. Their success in helping the Tigers win the NCAA women’s basketball national title in April is only one indicator of their talent. Reese enthusiastically envisions a WNBA with more than 144 roster positions. She stated the arena needed to evolve to showcase different skills.
Given the expanding number of good players and interest in women’s basketball, more individuals are asking WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert to consider adding more clubs. Post-draft rookies face fierce competition because there are only 12 WNBA clubs and 144 roster places each year.
LSU star Alexis Morris, who won in April with Reese, knows how intense the competition is. Her tale changed a month later when she was fired while training with the Connecticut Sun. In the 2023 WNBA draft, the Connecticut Sun selected her 22nd.
Morris’s irate online statement highlighted the roster’s shortcomings after the tournament. Her emotional short address highlighted the need for senior players to make place for fresh potential. Morris later admitted that she should have vented her fury at the league’s leaders, who may have planned its rise. The Atlanta Dream joined the WNBA in 2008, making them the latest.
Before joining the WNBA, Reese wants to play college basketball. She is most proud of winning a junior national title and graduating.
Also, armies are coming. Louisville star guard Hailey Van Lith will play her senior year at LSU. DePaul junior vanguard Aneesah Morrow also says she is devoted to the first-place team.
