LSU’s Angel Reese named SEC Preseason Player of the Year, four Tigers earn All-SEC honors

The SEC coaches have announced the full list of individual preseason accolades, and star forward Angel Reese has been named the Preseason SEC Player of the Year.

Reese was a unanimous First Team All-American last season, and she enters this season with high expectations. In addition to Preseason Player of the Year accolades, she was also named to the preseason First Team All-SEC.

She’s joined by transfer Hailey Van Lith, who was brought in to replace point guard Alexis Morris. Van Lith was an All-ACC selection at Louisville last season.

Two more Tigers also appear on the Second Team All-SEC list in Flau'Jae Johnson and Aneesah Morrow. Johnson had a breakout campaign as a freshman last season, earning SEC Freshman of the Year honors. Morrow, meanwhile, was a standout at DePaul before transferring to LSU this offseason.
