LSU Tigers forward Angel Reese answers a question during a pre-championship game press conference on Saturday, April 1, 2023 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

Since helping lead the LSU women's basketball team to the 2023 national title, Angel Reese seems to be becoming a bigger star by the week. 

The 6-foot-3 center has been parodied on Saturday Night Live, featured in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, pulled in multiple endorsement deals, appeared in TV commercials and even made a prominent cameo in a rap video featuring Cardi B and Latto. 

Many casual basketball fans first became aware of Reese when her taunting of Iowa's Caitlin Clark became a viral moment, but "Bayou Barbie" continues to prove that she will be a force to be reckoned with for years to come – on the court and off.  

While professional women's basketball in the U.S. is at a bit of a crossroads, the college game is as big as it has ever been after drawing 12.6 million viewers for the LSU-Iowa national title game. 

Reese showed up Wednesday at LSU coach Kim Mulkey's camp for young players, attracting a lengthy line of admirers that seemed to be never-ending. 

LSU assistant coach Bob Starkey posted video of the line to social media, following it around several corners before finally coming to the end.

Reese has one year of eligibility remaining at LSU, and she has a chance to grow her brand even more during her time in Baton Rouge. At the moment, it's hard to argue against the idea that she's the biggest name in women's basketball – pro or college.
