I’m loving Angel Reese’s protection to this point.

It would take a while for Reese to develop on the offensive finish, however she’s already confirmed to be a talented defender. She did not again down from dealing with a pair of MVPs in Stewart and Jones, so she has an perspective effectively past her years.

Chicago followers will certainly get pleasure from watching Reese’s recreation proceed to develop. She is going to look to maintain the momentum going when the Sky return to motion on Saturday in opposition to the Connecticut Solar.
