Angel Reese was a no-show for the LSU Tigers’ game against Southeastern Louisiana on Friday. The Tigers easily defeated Southeastern Louisiana 73-50 without their star forward.

Reese, 21, was noticeably absent on Friday after coach Kim Mulkey benched her during the second half of LSU’s 109-79 win over Kent State on Tuesday.

Mulkey confirmed that Reese was not with the team on Friday but she didn’t give a reason for her absence.

OutKick‘s Glenn Guilbeau reported that Reese was benched for an “attitude adjustment.”

Speculation ran rampant on social media after Reese’s mom, Angel Reese Webb, and teammate Flau’jea Johnson’s mother, Kia Brooks, snatched each other’s wigs on Instagram.

Reese’s mom wrote on IG:

“Folks pls do not send me long text msgs with a bunch of grammatical errors it gives me a headache. How do I know you said what you said if I can’t understand what you’re saying?”

Johnson’s mom fired back:

“You definitely know about grammar errors when your daughter got a 2.0 or less GPA… Stop being petty, fake and hateful, and take responsibility for you and your daughter’s actions.”

If you recall, Reese and Johnson were rumored to be lovers over the summer. They both dismissed the rumors in separate statements to the press.

Reese was heavily criticized for bragging about her lucrative NIL deals. She partied in nightclubs across the country and appeared in a music video with rappers Cardi B and Latto.

Reese was photographed everywhere except on a basketball practice court over the summer. She raised eyebrows by suggesting she was too famous to attend classes in person at LSU.

Earlier this month, coach Mulkey was critical of individual players when LSU was upset, 92-78, by then-No. 20 Colorado in their season opener.

“I’m disappointed and surprised in some individual players that I thought would just be tougher and have a little fight and leadership about them,” Mulkey said after the game on Nov. 6.

“You live with poor shooting, you live with a tough night offensively. What I don’t live with is just guts and fight and physical play [not being there],” she added.

LSU was expected to repeat this year as defending women’s college basketball champions. But now LSU’s season is in turmoil and the team might be short a star player.
