It’s unclear whether Reese will start or come off the bench.
What also remains fuzzy is why exactly Reese wasn’t playing in the first place … as Mulkey has been consistently tight-lipped about the details surrounding her absence.
LSU Coach Kim Mulkey Fires Back At Angel Reese Questions
Reese’s time away started when the 6-foot-3 forward was benched in the 2nd half of LSU’s win against Kent State on Nov. 14 … and she missed the next few games, including the Cayman Islands Classic tournament.
Rumors were circulating around social media that it may have been her grades, while Outkick reported she was suspended for an “attitude adjustment.” Neither rumor has been confirmed.
“That’s what coaches do. Sometimes y’all know about it and sometimes you don’t,” Mulkey said of the situation last week. “Sometimes you want to know more than you’re entitled to know.”
BTW, the 7-1 Tigers — who are currently ranked 7th — have been undefeated without Reese.
