Iowa's Caitlin Clark Shares Her Feelings on LSU's Angel Reese Following the NCAA Championship Game

While speaking to ESPN about the recent NCAA championship game, Caitlin Clark said she gives LSU all the credit! When asked about the controversy and criticism Angel Reese has received about the gestures she made during the finals, Clark stated, "We're all competitive; we all show our emotions in a different way. Angel is a tremendous, tremendous player. I have nothing but respect for her! I love her game; the way she rebounds the ball, scores the ball is absolutely incredible! I'm a big fan of her, and even the entire LSU team. Like I said, they played an amazing game. So, I don't think there should be any criticism for what she did. You know, I honestly didn't see it when the game was going on, and like I said, I haven't been on social media at all. I'm just trying to reflect back on what this team did and enjoy every single second with my teammates, because we have two really good seniors that will be moving on from our team that have given a lot."

Clark furthered to explain, "I think everyone knew there was going to be a little trash talk in the entire tournament; it's not just me and Angel...LSU deserves it, they played so well, and like I said, I'm a big fan of hers!.. Nobody wants to tune in and not see people be competitive and passionate about what they're doing! During her interview, ESPN announced that Caitlin would receive the 2023 John R. Wooden Award. Clark also won the Naismith, Wade, Meyers-Drysdale, and Associated Press awards this year for her outstanding performance in basketball. The University of Iowa sophomore said it might take weeks for everything to sink in, but she feels fortunate to have been a part of history.
