WNBA reverses second technical foul against Sky’s Angel Reese

After Angel Reyes was sent off for two technical fouls on Tuesday, one of them was overturned. Could he have stayed in the game?


The WNBA overturned the second technical foul That Tuesday was tagged to rookie forward Chicago Sky, Angel ReeseAs the league reported on Wednesday.

Reese was ejected after receiving two technical fouls for disagreeing with the referee in the fourth quarter of the Sky’s 88-75 loss to the visitors. New York Liberty.

Reese received his fifth personal foul with 2:31 left in the game and was then given two technical fouls by the same referee, Charles Watson. Reese seemed to say something to Watson and then quickly waved his hand.

“I asked for an explanation. They didn’t give me one,” the Sky coach said. Teresa Witherspoon, in the press conference following the match. “I don’t know at this point what happened.”

Head referee Major Forsberg later told a pool reporter after the match that Reiss’ technical fouls were due to him “addressing the referee in a disrespectful manner” and then “making a dismissive hand gesture.”

Reese, who finished with 13 points and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes, did not attend the news conference.

Lonzo Ball of the Chicago Bulls, who was in attendance at the game, said on X that he would pay the $400 fine Reyes received from the WNBA for the two technical fouls. Now, that fine would be $200, because it’s just a technical foul.

For the first three technical fouls in a season, the WNBA imposes a fine of $200 each. Technical fouls from four to six are each fined $400. The seventh technical foul carries an $800 fine plus a one-game suspension.
