Angel Reese makes WNBA history through first five games

Angel Reese makes WNBA history with the first five games originally appearing on NBC Sports Chicago

Five games into her professional career, Angel Reese already owns a little piece of competitive history.

After collecting 12 rebounds on Tuesday against the Seattle Storm, the 6-foot-4 Chicago Sky forward cemented herself as the second player in WNBA history to record 24 offensive rebounds in her first five games. Only Yolanda Griffith, widely considered one of the greatest rebounders and defensive players in women’s basketball history, had more offensive rebounds (31) through her first five games.

While impressive, this statistic also applies to the star rookie, who currently leads the entire league in offensive rebounds. Reese finished her career at LSU ranked No. 5 on the all-time NCAAW offensive rebounding list. She also finished No. 16 all-time in total rebounds.

Reese also recorded her first career double-double on Tuesday night, becoming the first Sky player since Sylvia Fowles to record one in her first five games.
