Angel Reese shares a message for Kateri Poole, who is no longer with the LSU team

LSU women’s basketball star Angel Reese shared words of support and encouragement for Kateri Poole, who is no longer with the Tigers, in a post to Instagram Monday morning.

“Forever my dawg! You know I love you & 10 behind you,” Reese, who wears the No. 10, said in an Instagram story that tagged Poole.

LSU coach Kim Mulkey confirmed Sunday night that Poole is no longer with the program.

The junior guard had been absent from the team in recent weeks, and hadn’t played at all since the Southeastern Louisiana game on Nov. 15. Poole had 1 point and 1 assist in 5 minutes of playing time that night in Hammond.

Poole played a key role in luring Reese, who also had her own unexplained 4-game absence, to LSU. She was the first to make a call to the former Maryland transfer and see if the talented center would be interested in joining Mulkey’s program.

Reese made a visit to the Baton Rouge campus, and quickly decided that LSU would be her next destination.

Poole saw plenty of playing time during LSU’s run to the national title a year ago, starting the final five games of the NCAA Tournament and providing tough defense. She averaged 4.5 points and 2.4 assists during the season.
