Angel Reese returns and scores 19 points as LSU overcomes Virginia Tech in a repeat of the Final Four.

Angel Reese, the defending national champion Tigers' double-double All-American star, returned with a bang Thursday night, scoring 19 points  

and collecting nine rebounds to help lead the Tigers to an 82-64 win against No. 9 Virginia Tech in the inaugural ACC/SEC challenge. 

The game was a rematch of the national semifinal game from 2023, which LSU also won, 79-72, on its way to the championship game. The victory was particularly notable for LSU coach Kim Mulkey,  

since it was her 700th of her career. She has 700 victories faster than anyone else in either the women's or men's game, 

needing only 813 games to achieve so. Reese and her coach had a deep embrace as the team celebrated Mulkey's accomplishment. 

Reese was fouled twice in the first half and played only 15 minutes, scoring six points and grabbing five rebounds.  

Mulkey remarked at halftime that she was relieved Reese was back and that the team could finally play together for the first time in two weeks, adding that "the team feeds off" Reese. 

Reese, the 2023 Final Four's Most Outstanding Player, was playing in his first game in more than two weeks on Thursday.
