2018 Arizona signee and incoming freshman Cate Reese has been named to the 2018 McDonald’s All-American Team, as announced by McDonald’s on Tuesday afternoon. Reese becomes Arizona’s first McDonald’s All-American in school history. Last week, Reese was named to the 2018 Naismith High School Girls’ Midseason Team.
Reese is tabbed as a five-star recruit and the fourth-best post player in the country by ESPN. Coming in as the 14th-best prospect in the country, Reese will be the highest ranked prospect Arizona women’s basketball has ever signed. This season, she averages 29.6 points, 15.2 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game for Cypress Woods High school. She has three 40-point games this season and recently eclipsed the 2,000-point mark for her career.
The Cypress, Texas native has been named TABC 6A All-State two times during her high school career. Last year, the 6’3″ forward scored 22.3 points per game and grabbed 13.2 rebounds per game. She scored over 30 points three times with a season-high of 36. Additionally, she had a stretch of 13-straight double-doubles and had one 20/20 game where she scored 27 points and had 20 rebounds. Reese had three such games where she grabbed 20 rebounds with a season-high of 22. Her sophomore season was also dominant as she scored 20.8 points per game and averaged 12.8 rebounds per game. Not only is Reese a standout on the basketball court, but she is also a force on the volleyball court.
