Angel Reese was one of the first to congratulate Iowa star Caitlin Clark on setting the new all-time NCAA women’s scoring mark.

Clark entered Thursday night’s game against Michigan trailing Kelsey Plum by seven points on the NCAA women’s basketball Division I scoring list. She scored Iowa’s first eight points, splashing home a 3 after a little more than two minutes of game time to officially pass by Plum and take the career scoring record for herself.

And Reese was paying attention. Shortly after, she sent a message to Clark on social media: “Keep breaking records & making her-story!”

The two players were inexplicably linked a year ago when Reese’s LSU Tigers defeated Clark’s Hawkeyes in the national championship. During the game, Reese taunted the Hawkeyes late by pointing to her ring finger. At one point, she also used the same “can’t guard me” gesture on Clark that Clark has shown to other opponents.

And she caught a tremendous amount of flack for it. Fans and media alike called her classless for it. But Clark defended the LSU star from what she felt was unfair criticism.

“We’re all competitive. We all show our emotions in a different way… Angel is a tremendous, tremendous player,” said Clark. “I have nothing but respect for her. I love her game.”

Both players are two of the best in college basketball. Reese is second among all Division I players this season with 12.6 rebounds per game. She’s also second among all SEC players in scoring, with 19.5 a night. Clark is leading all D1 players in scoring at over 32 a game. In Thursday night’s win over Michigan, she put up her fourth 40-point game of the season.

Game recognizes game.
