Angel Reese, Aneesah Morrow named to USBWA All-American teams

The regular season is in the books, and LSU’s women’s basketball team is turning its attention to the NCAA Tournament. It’s a No. 3 seed and looking to defend its national title this season behind last year’s star Angel Reese and transfer addition Aneesah Morrow.

Both were honored by the USBWA All-American teams, which were released Tuesday. Reese is a First Team All-American, while Morrow was named an honorable mention.

Reese has double-doubled in 12 straight games, and she became the first player since Vanderbilt’s Wendy Scholtens in 1989-90 to lead the SEC in scoring (19.0) and rebounding (13.1) in back-to-back seasons.

Morrow, meanwhile, is a transfer from DePaul and is averaging 16.3 points and 10 rebounds on the season. She also leads the team in steals (87) and blocks (41).

Reese, Morrow and the Tigers will be back in action on Friday afternoon as they host No. 14-seeded Rice in their first-round game at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.
