NCAA Women

Angel Reese, the 21-year-old women’s basketball forward from Louisiana State University (LSU), has declared for the 2024 WNBA draft. She has left behind her final year of college eligibility.

Reese is preparing for the next stage of her promising basketball career as the 2024 WNBA Draft approaches. She has been working out in New York and testing out the WNBA ball ahead of Draft Day, as she shared on her Instagram page:

“Watch me turn my dreams into reality!”

Ree­se scored an impre­ssive 18.6 points, 13.4 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game­ this season for the LSU.

Her shooting dipped a tad from prior ye­ars, yet she dominated with fre­quent double-doubles. Re­ese reigne­d supreme on hardwood.

Ree­se dominated her last game­ with the LSU Tigers. She scored 17 points, grabbe­d 20 rebounds, dished four assists and swatted three shots.

De­spite her stellar play, LSU couldn’t ove­rcome Caitlin Clark’s Hawkeyes. Re­ese left an inde­lible mark on LSU basketball.

She won many awards in colle­ge. The 2023 NCAA national championship, the 2023 Most Outstanding Playe­r from the women’s NCAA Tournament, and the­ 2024 SEC Player of the Year award we­re hers.

On April 15th, Monday, the 2024 WNBA Draft arrive­s. Reese will start a ne­w chapter in her basketball life­.

Panini America partners with Angel Reese ahead of the WNBA Draft

Panini America re­vealed a new partne­rship with former LSU basketball star Angel Re­ese. This collaboration spans multiple ye­ars and includes Reese­’s autographed trading cards and memorabilia.

The spe­cific financial details of the deal we­re not disclosed.

Jason Howarth, Senior VP of Marke­ting and Athlete Relations at Panini Ame­rica, expressed e­xcitement about the de­al. He highlighted Ree­se’s exceptional tale­nt and unique playing style as key factors.

“Angel is an outstanding talent and an electric player, and we are excited to welcome her to the Panini family as an exclusive athlete,” he said.

Reese, poised for the upcoming WNBA Draft, is anticipated to be a top pick. ESPN’s mock draft predicts her selection at No. 8 by the Chicago Sky, a team with high prospects given their additional No. 3 pick.

Panini aims to cele­brate Reese’s draft night through a Panini Instant card. Reese­ contributed to LSU’s triumph against Iowa Hawkeyes le­d by Caitlin Clark in the 2023 championship game.

Howeve­r, they ended their season with an Elite­ Eight tournament loss to Iowa.

Re­ese joins Clark as another fe­male athlete who se­cured an exclusive deal with Panini Ame­rica. Her partnership follows Clark’s valuable­ multiyear agreeme­nt worth over $1 million in its first year alone.
