LSU’s Angel Reese earns multiple First Team All-America honors

It’s been a dominant first season in the SEC for Maryland transfer Angel Reese.

She’s been LSU’s best player — as well as one of the nation’s best players — and she’s adding yet another piece of hardware to a growing collection. On Wednesday, Reese was named a First Team All-America selection by the Associated Press and the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

Reese is averaging 23.4 points and 15.5 assists this season, both of which lead the SEC. She has 27 doubles in 28 games, tying Sylvia Fowles’ regular-season school record, and she also set the conference single-season record with seven SEC Player of the Week selections.

She has five games in 2022-23 with at least 20 points and 20 rebounds, which leads the nation.

Choosing Reese as a First-Teamer was a no-brainer, and she’ll now look to lead LSU — a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament — beyond last year’s second-round exit. The Tigers begin their postseason run against Hawaii on Friday at 4:30 p.m. CT on their home court at the PMAC.
