Caitlin Clark rubbed salt in her wound Sunday afternoon in Dallas.
Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes came one win shy of winning the 2023 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament as Kim Mulkey’s LSU Tigers topped the national championship game. Angel Reese upped the ante as Baton Rouge’s girls put the finishing touches on their title win By mocking Arguably the best player in women’s college basketball.
With LSU’s victory sealed, Reese showed his ring finger and stuck it to Clark — signaling the Tigers’ impending championship jewelry — and broke out a few “you can’t see me” waves. The second gesture was a Clarke bust himself during Iowa’s Elite Eight win over Louisville.
After the game, Clark was there asked about Reese’s teasing.
“Honestly, I have no idea,” Clarke told reporters. “I went to the handshake line and tried to shake hands and, you know, be thankful that my team was in that position. That’s all you can do — keep your head up and be proud of what you’ve done. All the credit in the world to LSU, they’re huge. They deserve it. They have a Had an amazing season. Kim Mulkey coached them really well. She’s one of the best basketball coaches of all time and it shows. She said nothing but the kindest things to me in the handshake line, so I’m very grateful for that.
“But honestly, I have no idea. I just tried to spend the last few minutes on the court, especially starting 93 games with five men and enjoying every second.
Reese, a sophomore, will be a key part of LSU’s plans next season as the Tigers defend their national title. For Clark, the 2023-24 campaign will mark his last shot at the ultimate collegiate prize before he heads to the professional ranks.
