Caitlin Clark reveals real reaction to media storm over THAT Angel Reese celebration during 2023 title game in Full Court Press

Caitlin Clark revealed her initial reaction to the viral celebration from former LSU star Angel Reese during their championship game showdown in 2023.

In the Tigers‘ 102-85 win over the Iowa Hawkeyes, Reese memorably did WWE legend John Cena‘s ‘U Can’t See Me’ gesture in front of Clark – which the latter previously did in a game against Louisville. Additionally, Reese looked at Clark and pointed at her ring finger late in the fourth quarter.

In ESPN’s recently released Full Court Press docuseries, Clark shared her thoughts on the media storm that followed Reese’s celebration.

‘That’s the only thing people wanted to talk about when we just went on this magical run and united so many people, and that like was frustrating to me,’ Clark shared.

Iowa coach Lisa Bluder also chimed in on the subject, saying: ‘The media was trying to create a circus out of racial things, out of trying to make hatred come up, and she [Clark] just wouldn’t let it happen.’

After the game, a visibly disappointed Clark expressed her frustration with the outcome.
