It’s worth mentioning, however, that not all of Reese’s career points came at LSU, as she spent the first two seasons of her career at Maryland, where she scored 719 points.

Reese’s best season so far came in 2022-23, when she was named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player after leading LSU to a national championship win over Iowa and the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer Caitlin Clark.

Reese could potentially break the school record for points, as she still has another season of eligibility due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, she may declare for the 2024 WNBA Draft, where she’s projected to be a first-round pick according to ESPN.
