LSU’s first major title in this division brought much needed attention to the women’s game with stars Angel Reese and Caitlin Clark’s rivalry being watched by millions. While the rivalry between the young stars saw the viewership numbers soar, the on-court altercation between the two brought a wave of support for each side making both Clark and Reese online celebrities overnight.

Although Caitlin Clark has been a highly touted prospect all her career it is Angel Reese’s rise to the top which has been meteoric to say the least. The 6’4 star has been a hit off the court with her newfound fame making her join Olivia Dunne in a rather peculiar decision. Despite continuing to grow in stature Reese looks to be balancing her larger-than-life personality with ease as she recently announced a ‘bayou barbie’ inspired merchandise drop before the start of the new season.

With the quoted price of the Jersey being $50 dollars on her website it is safe to say that many fans will be rocking her jersey when the season rolls around in a month’s time.

LSU Tigers begin their title defense

After shocking the entire country by being the lowest ranked side to win a NCAA title since 1997, the LSU Tigers will be looking to repeat their heroics of last season as they start their title defense early next month. While the Tigers didn’t have any strong oppositions during the first 2 months of the season last term the same won’t be the case this time as they face the Buffaloes and the Hookies during the first month.

While not playing a top side during the first few months was a main reason behind LSU’s low seeding last year the tough start to the season this time will be an important test for the Tigers as they look to clinch back-to-back titles for the first time in their history.
