It pleased the LSU Tigers to announce that Angel Reese will be rejoining the team following a four-game absence. Before their Thursday night matchup against No. 9 Virginia Tech, Reese is expected to join the seventh-ranked Tigers. “Angel’s back,” LSU Tigers women’s basketball team coach Kim Mulkey declared at a press conference on Wednesday. Coach Mulkey did not, however, explain Reese’s absence.

Reese is delighted to hear this news and Shaquille O’Neal, who she lovingly calls her “Uncle.” Reese and Shaq have grown close to one another over time and repeatedly expressed their affection for one another. On his Instagram stories, Shaq expressed gratitude for his “niece” by sharing a TMZ post revealing Angel Reese would rejoin the LSU Tigers.

Angel Reese said:

He told me every day, like, ‘This, too, shall pass. Just being able to have somebody like that was good for me. Uncle told me when I was right. He told me when I was wrong. He told me what I needed to do to get back to where I am.

She continued, “This too shall pass,” indicating Shaq’s encouragement for her.

Angel Reese was eager to talk and eager to play. After missing four games, she returned right away to the starting lineup and scored 19 points on Thursday night to help No. 7 LSU defeat No. 9 Virginia Tech 82-64. Players can benefit greatly from the guidance of mentors, such as Shaquille O’Neal, on as well as off the court.

Forbes’ renowned “30 Under 30” list for this year has included several known female athletes, with Angel Reese leading the pack, in a significant nod to the growing prominence of women’s sports. Reese’s inclusion serves to highlight both the growing acknowledgment of women’s contributions to the sports industry as well as her accomplishments.

She shot to national prominence thanks to her season-long performance, particularly at the 2023 Final Four when she was named the Most Outstanding Player. Reese’s star is still rising despite obstacles, such as his inexplicable absence from four games in the new season. Her endorsement contracts with companies like Coach and Reebok attest to her expanding stature both inside and outside of the sports world.
