"Please don't believe everything you read," she wrote in an email.On Friday night, LSU coach Kim Mulkey sent a mysterious message as well.
"Angel is part of this basketball team, and we hope to see her sooner than later," he said.
She gave no further explanation and refused to answer any further questions about Reese. There were no LSU players available for postgame interviews.
Reese started the season's first four games, averaging 17 points and 10.3 rebounds per game.
LSU went 3-1 during that time, with the only loss coming against Colorado in the season opener.
