CHICAGO — Following Thursday’s game against the Dallas Wings, Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese recorded her seventh consecutive double-double, making her the first WNBA rookie to achieve the feat.

The No. 7 overall pick recorded 16 points, a career-high 18 rebounds and three assists in the Sky’s 83-72 win. 

“I’m just happy we finally won, and at home,” Reese said in the post-game broadcast. “It’s super exciting for myself. I try to give myself some grace and tell myself I’m doing a good job. But I have so much more to grow and I’m just excited to be in this league and excited to win some more.”

Reese had a strong start to the game, putting up seven rebounds in the game’s first eight minutes. By halftime, Reese had already racked up 11 rebounds.

The six-game double-double record was set by Cindy Brown in 1998 and tied by Tina Charles in 2010. In that same year, Charles set the rookie season double-double record with 22.

Reese has been honing her double-double abilities since her time at Louisiana State University. She currently holds the NCAA single-season record of 34 double-doubles, a record she broke during the 2022-23 season in which she averaged 23 points and 15.4 rebounds per game and helped the Tigers to their first national championship. 

Reese ranks top five in the WNBA in rebounds and leads all players in offensive rebounds. With her eight double-doubles and 26 remaining games, the rookie has plenty of opportunities to further make her mark.

On the season, Reese has averaged 12.1 points, 10.2 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.8 steals.

Reese and the Sky continue the homestead Sunday, June 23 in a matchup against the Indiana Fever. The game will be streamed on ESPN with tipoff set for 4 P.M. ET.
