In what has been a whirlwind month, Chicago Sky’s newest addition, Angel Reese, is shining both on and off the court. From being crowned as the 2024 SEC Player of the Year to soaring to the No. 7 overall pick in the WNBA draft on April 15, the 22-year-old showcases extensive basketball skills. Not just that, she recently achieved another feat at the Louisiana State University.

Reese bids adieu to Baton Rouge, the ground that armed her with a basketball career along with a graduation degree. Notably, Reese majored in interdisciplinary studies and communication studies with minor subjects such as leadership development, and psychology during these four years.

To share this ecstatic news among her supporters, and family members, she took it to her official Instagram account and posted a couple of pictures highlighting her graduation cap. Alongside the pictures, she penned a heartfelt note, “So now what? what was said? oh okay that’s what I thought. I graduated from THE LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY IN 4 YEARS ON TIME💋 I thought somebody without a college degree said sum.
