Angel Reese becomes the first WNBA rookie with 7 straight double-doubles as Sky beats Wings handily

Angel Reese continues to put together a newsworthy rookie season with the Chicago Sky. She achieved another double-double on Thursday, posting 16 points and 18 rebounds as the Sky defeated the Dallas Wings 83-72.

More importantly, Thursday’s win marked Reese’s seventh straight double-double, making her the only WNBA rookie to achieve such a feat.

Reese’s 18 rebounds also mark a career-high for her in her young WNBA career. Reese scored a career-high 20 points in a loss to the Connecticut Sun last week, in what was her fourth straight double-double.

With the milestone, Reese passes Tina Charles and Cindy Brown for the most consecutive games with a double-double as a rookie, continuing to make a name for herself in her first WNBA season.

Reese spoke about her record-breaking streak after the match, saying she was especially excited about the Sky’s victory after four straight losses, but was also pleased with her performance.

“I still have so much growing to do and I’m just excited to play in this league,” Reese said on ESPN.

Reese is proving herself to be a valuable member of her team on both ends of the court, averaging 12.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists so far this season.

The young forward also appears to be finding inspiration from other Chicago legends, appearing for the match in a Michael Jordan-themed top.

Thursday’s win means the Sky currently sit ninth in the league at 5-9. On Sunday, Chicago has another highly anticipated matchup against Caitlin Clark and the Indiana Fever, who easily defeated the Sky on Sunday.
