“Around the NCAAW Weekly” highlights the notable events of the week. Check out the milestones, surprises, best games and outstanding performances for games played through Sunday, Jan. 8:


1/5/2023: Angel Reese of the No. 5 LSU Tigers hauled in 28 rebounds for a program single-game high and an SEC high since 1982. She added 26 points.

Here’s a quote from Reese from after the game that was featured in LSU’s recap:

There’s a lot of great players who came before me. ... On (Jan. 15) Seimone Augustus’ statue is going up (at LSU). I want to be like that, I want to set records, I want a statue one day. Being able to look up to someone like Seimone or Sylvia Fowles. I want to be in the same columns as players like them. I’m very blessed to be in the situation that I’m in.
