Despite the anticipation of a grudge match, the Elite Eight showdown between Iowa’s Caitlin Clark and LSU’s Angel Reese in the 2024 NCAA women’s tournament was characterized by nothing but mutual respect and admiration.

Following Iowa’s hard-fought 94-87 victory, Clark and Reese embraced, showcasing the bond between them:

Despite LSU’s national title win last year against Iowa, they found themselves at a loss against Clark’s extraordinary performance in this rematch. Clark dominated the court, amassing an impressive 41 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds, two steals, and one block, including nine successful three-pointers.

Although the game was tied at halftime, Clark’s remarkable display in the third quarter, marked by four deep three-pointers, secured a lead that Iowa never relinquished.

The post-game moment shared between the two athletes wasn’t unexpected, given their history of supporting each other. Even after Reese playfully taunted Clark last year with gestures about her championship ring, Clark responded with understanding and support:

In turn, Reese reciprocated the support after Clark shattered the NCAA Division I women’s basketball scoring record this season:

Ultimately, it’s Clark and the Hawkeyes who advance after their outstanding performance, but any rivalry between these two stars seems confined solely to the basketball court.
