Angel Reese injured in LSU’s Elite Eight matchup against Iowa

Angel Reese was injured in the second quarter of LSU’s Elite Eight matchup against Iowa on Monday.

Reese contested a shot by Caitlin Clark and when she came down on the floor, she appeared to twist her right ankle as she stumbled toward the photographers and camera crews underneath the basket.

Reese then limped toward the LSU bench where team medical personnel began to look at her. The junior forward then walked over to use the workout bicycle before checking herself back into the game a few minutes later.

She was noticeably limping as she ran back and forth down the court.

Reese has 13 points and eight rebounds at halftime, but sat at the end of the second quarter after picking up her second foul. She was back on the court for the second half.

The Baltimore native had a right ankle injury in the SEC tournament and showed up to the championship game against South Carolina in a walking boot. She had 15 points and 13 rebounds in the loss.

LSU’s head women’s basketball coach made some interesting comments after her team’s late-game kerfuffle with South Carolina’s women’s basketball team.

 

There’ll be opinions galore posted all over the interwebs in the aftermath of South Carolina’s extremely physical battle with the LSU Tigers for the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament Title on Sunday afternoon.

When interviewed immediately after the game, Gamecock head coach Dawn Staley publicly apologized for her team’s role in the late-game fiasco that saw Kamilla Cardoso ejected and several bench players from both sides after a scrum broke out due to some extracurriculars.

 

 

Of course, LSU Tigers coach Kim Mulkey was asked in her postgame press conference what she saw from her vantage point, and while the majority of her answer objectively made sense, the end of her answer was eyebrow-raising, to say the least.

“It’s ugly. It’s not good. No one wants to be a part of that. No one wants to see that ugliness, but I can tell you this: I wish [Kamilla Cardoso] would’ve pushed Angel Reese.

Don’t push a kid; you’re 6’8. Don’t push somebody that little.

That was uncalled for, in my opinion. Let those two girls that were jawing go at it.”

To be fair, it’s unknown whether or not Mulkey had gone back and seen the whole sequence of events that led to Cardoso doing what she did, but either way, it’s a good thing that some time will pass before both of these teams potentially meet up again in the NCAA Tournament.
