Angel Reese continues to rack up SEC weekly awards, named league Player of the Week for 7th time
The SEC simply has no answer for Angel Reese.
The sophomore forward from Baltimore who transferred in this offseason from Maryland has been as impactful as any player in college basketball in the midst of a record-setting 2022-23 season.
After notching a pair of double-doubles this week (23 points and 18 rebounds at Vanderbilt, 23 points and 26 rebounds vs. Mississippi State) she’s been named the SEC Player of the Week for a record seventh time this season.
Averaging 23.7 points and 16 rebounds per game on the season, Reese notched her 27th double-double of the season in Sunday’s regular-season finale against Mississippi State, tying Sylvia Fowles’ program record. Sunday’s game was her fifth 20-point, 20-rebound game of the year, and she became the first SEC player to have two 26-rebound games in her career.
