GREENVILLE, S.C. – A three-time All-American, SEC and LSU record holder in career assists with 6,379 and a member of LSU’s Athletic Hall of Fame, LSU volleyball’s Dani Reis added SEC legend honors, the league announced during the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament Thursday.

Reis joins 13 other former student-athletes recognized by the conference as a part of the 2017 Class of Women’s Legends, which showcases former student-athletes and coaches from all 14 member institutions. Head coach Fran Flory traveled to South Carolina to be recognized along Reis and her family who traveled from Brazil.

The most outstanding setter in program history, Reis was a four-year letter winner who helped LSU to back-to-back Final Four appearances in 1990 and 1991. The Brazilian was named to the All-SEC team in each of her final three seasons and was also named the MVP of the SEC Tournament during her freshman season.

Reis ranks fourth in league history and holds the LSU record for most assists in a single season with 1,701. Reis was the first player in program history to be inducted into the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame when she was recognized in 2013.
