Maryland women’s basketball forward Angel Reese was mentioned on the Baltimore Sun’s 25 Women to Watch 2021 list. The list includes women to look out for in business, advocacy, and sports in the Baltimore, Maryland area.
Reese is also the youngest woman to make the 2021 list.
Reese helped Maryland to a Sweet 16 appearance in last year’s NCAA Tournament as a freshman and she will be featured on one of the top teams in the nation once again. She missed 14 games a season ago due to a foot fracture but still performed well in the 15 she did see action in. In her first season of college basketball, Reese averaged 11 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game. Reese is one of the most talented players on an already stacked Maryland roster that is coming into the 2021-22 season with a No. 4 rankings, per the AP Top 25 preseason poll.
Last season, Reese was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week once and she also made the All-Big Ten Freshman Team. She’s likely going to play a major role in the frontcourt for Maryland, along with redshirt junior Mimi Collins.
