LSU’s Angel Reese and Aneesah Morrow named to AP All-American teams

LSU women’s basketball stars Angel Reese and Aneesah Morrow were honored as members of the postseason USBWA All-American teams on Tuesday, and now the Associated Press has followed suit.

Both Reese and Morrow appear among the AP All-American teams that were announced on Wednesday. Reese, who was a First-Teamer per the USBWA, is a Second-Teamer per the AP. Morrow, meanwhile, is also an honorable mention on the AP teams.

Reese built on a record-setting campaign last season, becoming the first player since Vanderbilt’s Wendy Scholtens in 1989-90 to lead the SEC in both scoring and rebounding in back-to-back seasons.

Morrow is a DePaul transfer who leads the team in steals and blocks while averaging double figures in scoring and rebounding, as well.

Reese, Morrow and the rest of the Tigers will return to the court on Friday as they host Rice at the Pete Maravich Assembly Center in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.
