When sports fans look back on the 2024 WNBA draft class, the Chicago Sky may be remembered as a team who got the steal of the century when they selected Angel Reese seventh overall.

Reese on Sunday had 10 points and 16 rebounds in the 70-62 loss to the Minnesota Lynx. She made WNBA history as she recorded her 10th consecutive double-double. Reese broke Candace Parker’s mark after the former Los Angeles Sparks guard had nine straight in 2015.
