Latest WNBA draft projections as Angel Reese, Hailey Van Lith face key decisions

Now that the LSU women’s basketball season is officially over after a 94-87 loss to Iowa in the Elite Eight on Monday night, a pair of Tigers stars face key decisions with a quick turnaround.

With coach Kim Mulkey’s team eliminated, stars Angel Reese and Hailey Van Lith only have 48 hours — until Wednesday night — to declare for the WNBA draft.

Both maintain the option of returning to LSU for another season, and neither has given a clear indication of what they intend to do. Reese said Monday after the loss that she would make a decision when the time is right.

While Van Lith isn’t receiving much first-round hype, Reese is. The Minnesota Lynx at pick No. 7 has been a commonly projected landing spot, though the latest first-round mock from CBS has her going eighth to the Chicago Sky.

Only time will tell what the pair ultimately decides to do, but they don’t have a long time to mull it over.
