LSU Star Angel Reese Says She'll Attend White House Visit After Jill Biden ControversyApril 10, 2023
LSU hoops star Angel Reese has decided she will attend the White House visit with her team after all … days after she contemplated skipping the visit because of remarks made by First Lady Jill Biden.
Remember, Reese took issue with FLOTUS saying Iowa should attend the White House, too — a tradition usually reserved for championship winners — calling Jill’s suggestion “a joke.”
“In the beginning, we were hurt — it was emotional because we know how hard we worked all year for everything,” Reese said Friday.
“You don’t get that experience [to go to the White House] ever … and I know my team probably wants to go for sure, and my coaches are supportive of that, so I’m going to do what’s best for the team and we’ve decided we’re going to go.”
“I’m a team player. I’m going to do what’s best for the team. I’m the captain.”
LSU said Thursday they would be “excited” to celebrate the program’s first NCAA women’s basketball national championship, leaving many to speculate whether Reese would join them.
Angel erased any doubts on Friday … she’ll be at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. when the time comes for some face time with POTUS.
