Angel Reese has been attracting attention ever since she showcased an outstanding performance in the 2023 National Championship. Despite facing numerous doubters, Reese, a newcomer for the Chicago Sky, consistently demonstrates her abilities in every game. Tonight, she achieved her first WNBA triple double and also notched her 12th consecutive double-double of the rookie season against the Seattle Storm. Her performance equals Candace Parker’s record for the most consecutive double-doubles in the history of the league.

Reese’s Milestone Performance

Reese excelled with 27 points, 10 rebounds, 2 assists, and 2 blocks. She also demonstrated her versatility on the court by hitting her first two three-pointers of the season. Jeanine Ogbonnaya, Reese’s agent and close friend, proudly showcased Reese’s achievements on Instagram, questioning the critics with the statement, “What will they say next?!”

A Closer Look at the Game

Reese played a vital role in helping the Sky secure a victory against the Seattle Storm in an exciting game. Chennedy Carter, who scored 33 points, was another important contributor to Chicago’s win. In spite of Seattle’s strong defensive efforts, Marina Mabrey was limited to just 8 points, yet she was still able to contribute with 7 assists and 4 rebounds.

Kamilla Cardoso also put on an impressive show, coming close to achieving a double-double by scoring 9 points and grabbing 8 rebounds. However, although all of Seattle’s starting players reached double figures in scoring, it was not sufficient to defeat Chicago’s persistent determination.

Impact on Standings

The Chicago Sky’s win has advanced them to third place in their conference and seventh place overall in the league, improving their chances of making it to the playoffs. The victory was even more important because it happened at the same time as the Atlanta Dream’s defeat against the Dallas Wings, which helped boost Chicago’s rankings.

Reese’s Journey and Future Prospects

Angel Reese has had an impressive journey from conquering the National Championship to making her presence known in the WNBA. As she keeps scoring double-doubles, her chances of winning the Rookie of the Year award become increasingly noticeable. Her ability to bounce back and succeed despite criticism showcases her talent and commitment on the court.

Reese’s influence on the Chicago Sky is unmistakable, and it will be thrilling to observe her performance for the rest of the season. As the Sky rise in the standings, Reese’s efforts will be vital in their push for a prosperous playoff campaign.


Angel Reese’s display against the Seattle Storm sends a strong message to her doubters: she is determined to succeed and remain. With her remarkable abilities and consistent backing from her agent and team, Reese is well on her way to becoming a standout player in the WNBA. Throughout the season, everyone will be closely watching this up-and-coming player to see her impact on both her team and her own performance in the league.
