Angel Reese Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Angel Reese is undeniably an absolute legend for the LSU Tigers women’s basketball team as she helped guide the team to the national championship in the 2022-23 college basketball season, beating Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes in the title game. But it sounds like her time at LSU was not without incident.

According to a records request obtained by USA Today, Washington Post reporter Kent Babb was told by sources that Angel Reese was involved in a fight in the locker room that took place in front of LSU reports. Babb told LSU Sports Information Director Grant Kauvar about the incident as part of a “summary” of things he felt “warranted a heads up” before his article published.

“This [meeting] was after a fight involving Angel Reese, witnessed by one of my sources, that occurred in front of visiting recruits.” Babb said in the letter, obtained by USA Today. “One of these individuals present in the team meeting shared that Mulkey said: ‘This entire locker room is trash.’”

Obviously, this event did not ultimately make it into the final edit of Babb’s article earlier this year, but the Washington Post told USA Today in a statement that it “stands by Kent Babb and his reporting.”
