Angel Reese and Kateri Poole have both been absent from the LSU Tigers’ recent games, drawing attention but sparking little speculation.
Reese missed several games after being benched during a game against Kent State, while Poole’s absence has received less attention, despite her being a key player.
Poole played briefly in a game against Southeastern Louisiana but has not played since then, nor did she travel with the team to the Cayman Islands. Van Lith and Morrow’s addition to the team has reduced Poole’s playing time significantly.
Reese’s absence has garnered more attention, with her activity on social media during the hiatus drawing particular interest, even though the reason for her absence remains unclear.
