With another regular season officially in the books, it is time to hand out SEC postseason awards. The LSU Tigers are the defending National Champions and had plenty of returning players to make a run, most notably Angel Reese.

Reese has been one of the best players in the country in the last two years, and her attitude and mentality have become her trademark. Reese is one to tell you how it is. She will also tell you how good she is, then go to he court and prove it. Prove she did as she was named SEC Player of the Year this season.

There was some news and noise surrounding Reese at the beginning of the season. Suddenly a few games into the 2023-2024 season, Reese was suddenly missing from the court with no explanation. LSU head coach Kim Mulkey would not speak on the matter leaving everyone with so many questions. Ultimately, Reese returned to the court after some time and it came out that Reese has some lockerroom issues that to this day Mulkey has declined to comment on.

Other than the hiccup early in the season, Reese has proven she deserves this award. In 26 games this season, Reese averages 19.1 points, a 49.9 field goal percentage, and 13 rebounds in her fourth season. She leads the SEC in points per game and rebound per game.

Reese was not the only Tiger to receive an SEC postseason award. Freshman guard Mikaylah Williams was awarded SEC Freshman of the Year. In her first season with LSU, Williams is averaging 14.9 points per game, 4.9 rebounds per game, and has a 47.6 field goal percentage and a 37.7 three-point percentage.

Williams has impressed in her first season playing and starting in 29 games. She will have a bright future with the Tigers under Mulkey. As a top recruit coming out of high school, Williams was a highly anticipated player and she proved she was a force to be reckoned with when she scored 42 points just four games into the season against Kent State. She has scored 20+ points in seven games with season with one double-double.

Several LSU players were named to numerous different teams. Here is a list of every team that an LSU Tiger was named to.
