Angel Reese continues to impress in her WNBA career, setting a new milestone during her team’s 70-62 loss to the Minnesota Lynx on Sunday. Reese made history by becoming the first WNBA player to achieve a double-double in 10 consecutive games within a single season.

In the game against the Lynx, Angel Reese secured an impressive 16 rebounds and was just two points away from achieving double figures in both categories once more. With 23 seconds remaining, she calmly sank two free throws to reach this significant milestone.

This achievement surpasses the previous record of nine consecutive double-doubles, which was held by two-time WNBA MVP and former Chicago Sky player Candace Parker. Reese’s accomplishment is even more remarkable considering that she is in her rookie season. She had already set another record on June 20 by becoming the first rookie to achieve a double-double in seven consecutive games during Chicago’s victory against the Dallas Wings.


The day was doubly significant for the 22-year-old Reese, as she was also honored with the title of BET’s Sportswoman of the Year. Despite her remarkable performance on the boards, the Chicago Sky suffered a disappointing defeat against the Lynx, bringing the team’s record to 6-11 for the season. Reese faced challenges with her shooting accuracy, converting only four of her 16 field goal attempts during the game.

Chicago Sky head coach Teresa Weatherspoon focused on the positives and commended Reese for her resilience after the game. “Just proud of her, proud of what she does,” Weatherspoon told reporters. “I’m sure she’ll say ‘the win was more important.’ She’s gonna continue to do what she does, it’s who she is, she’s always gonna come out and play hard and confident and give you everything that she has.

“She’s the hardest person on herself, so proud of what she’s doing and what she’ll continue to do,” Weatherspoon added.

Reese’s record-setting performance has solidified her as a rising star in the WNBA. Her ability to consistently deliver double-doubles highlights her exceptional talent and work ethic. As she continues to break records and receive accolades, Angel Reese is poised to have a significant impact on the league for years to come.

Despite the team’s current struggles, Reese’s individual achievements provide a bright spot for the Chicago Sky and their fans. Her dedication and performance serve as an inspiration to her teammates and young athletes aspiring to reach the professional level. With her relentless drive and skill, Angel Reese is undoubtedly a player to watch in the WNBA.
