Angel Reese named SEC Player of the Year. She wasn’t the only LSU star honored.

The Southeastern Conference coaches picked Angel Reese the league’s 2024 Player of the Year and Mikaylah Williams the Freshman of the Year.

Reese and Williams were among five Tigers to receive SEC women’s basketball postseason accolades, which the conference announced Tuesday.

Aneesah Morrow made the All-SEC first team, Flau’jae Johnson made the second team, and Aalyah Del Rosario was one of eight players named to the conference’s all-freshman team. Reese, who now joins Seimone Augustus and Sylvia Fowles as the only three LSU players to have won the SEC Player of the Year honor, was also nominated to the league’s all-defensive team for the second consecutive year. Throughout the regular season, the standout LSU senior forward averaged 19 points and 13 rebounds while shooting 50% from the field.


Williams, the second Tiger to win the SEC Freshman of the Year award in as many years, averaged 15 points per game while shooting 38% from three and 48% from the field. Johnson won it last season.

Dawn Staley of South Carolina has been selected SEC Coach of the Year for the seventh consecutive year. Her outstanding center, Kamilla Cardoso, was named the conference’s Defensive Player of the Year.

LSU became the first SEC team since 2015 to have one player earn Player of the Year while another won Freshman of the Year.

It was also the fourth time in history that two players from the same team received the Freshman of the Year title in consecutive seasons.
