Angel Reese picks up first WNBA win with Chicago Sky

The Chicago Sky picked up their first win of the year on Saturday night. That meant former LSU basketball star Angel Reese got the first win of her WNBA career.

Reese nearly recorded a double-double in an 83-74 win over the Dallas Wings. Reese scored 11 with nine rebounds and a steal. Seven of those nine rebounds came on the offensive glass, which comes as no surprise to LSU fans who watched her dominate the offensive boards for two years.

Reese had a plus-mine of +17 on the day. Only the Sky’s Elizabeth Williams had a better mark.

Through two games, Reese is averaging 11.5 points per game while shooting .348 from the field.

The win wasn’t Reese’s only accomplishment on Saturday. It was graduation day for Reese too as she received her college degree after two years at Maryland and two years at LSU. Reese wasn’t able to make the ceremony, but she commemorated the occasion with a post on social media.

Reese’s teammates offered praise following the game with Diamond DeShields calling Reese a “rare talent.”

The Sky will be back in action again on May 23 as they face the undefeated New York Liberty.
