Women’s college basketball hasn’t been talked about like this for quite some time.
Millions of people surely tuned in to watch the LSU Tigers take on the Iowa Hawkeyes, but it would be the end of the game that had people talking.
LSU enjoyed a record-setting victory over Iowa in the national championship of the 2023 NCAA women’s basketball tournament, dropping 102 points to win its first-ever national title.
Angel Reese held nothing back during the waning moments of the game, taunting Hawkeyes superstar Caitlin Clark straight to her face several times. She hit Clark with WWE legend John Cena’s “you can’t see me” hand motion late in the fourth quarter after LSU had put the game out of reach.
Social media loved and hated it.
To the people who thought it was classless, former NFL player Emmanuel Acho posted a video online that showed Clark doing the very celebration against the Louisville Cardinals as he brought up other excellent points.
“If it wasn’t “classless” when Caitlin Clark did it, don’t call it classless when Angel Reese does it. Let the women compete, it’s sports!!”
Reese made her own bit of college basketball history, setting a record with 34 double-doubles on the season, the most ever in a single season by an individual in women’s NCAA Division I history.
She finished the game with 15 points, 10 rebounds, and five assists.
Clark outplayed her, but only one of them left the arena with a ring.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
