Caitlin Clark Gets Her Revenge On Angel Reese Again

Rivalries in sports are what make them so great. This extends to the players, coaches, organizations, and fans. They keep narratives alive and drive all sorts of drama up from out of nowhere. We have seen over the years what a strong rivalry can do for the viewership of a sport and the WNBA is finally starting to reap some of the benefits from this.

With the rise in popularity in recent years, the W has added much more talent to the league. And now with the addition of the 2024 WNBA Draft class, the interest in the sport has grown to even higher levels. Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark and Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese headline the star power from this year’s rookie class, each giving their own twist on what the term means.

The two were somewhat rivals in college dating back to the 2023 NCAA Tournament Championship game when Reese’s LSU Tigers defeated Clark’s Iowa Hawkeyes. But the signature moment came from Reese hitting Clark with her immortal “You can’t see me” hand gesture toward the end of the game. This sparked all sorts of storylines and narratives despite the two actually being collegial off the court.

However, the two faced off against one another for the first time as professionals on Saturday, helping to re-spark their rivalry on the court. It was a highly-anticipated match that saw the Fever come out on top at home. This was a signature moment for the two players, and they have single-handedly helped grow the viewership of the WNBA even more so.

Indiana held a slight lead for most of the second half, shutting down any runs that the Sky were trying to make. Indiana played sound team basketball down the stretch, which was the difference in the game. Clark now has gotten her revenge on Reese at the WNBA level and has beaten her in the last two matchups. Iowa took down LSU in the Elite Eight this past NCAA Tournament.
In the game, Clark took a big hit from Chennedy Carter that knocked her to the ground. These moments seem to come often for Clark as she learns how to be in the WNBA.
