On an exhilarating Thursday night, a new NCAA Division I women's basketball scoring record was shattered. The one behind this historic feat was none other than Iowa's basketball dynamo, Caitlin Clark. And who was amongst the first to celebrate this momentous achievement? It was LSU's basketball titan, Angel Reese.

Reese, a star in her own right, took to the social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) to applaud Clark’s historic 3,528th point. This magnificent score propelled Clark past the record previously held by Kelsey Plum. "Congratulations @CaitlinClark22 KEEP BREAKING RECORDS & MAKING HER-STORY!" - Angel Reese

Reese and Clark are no strangers to sharing headlines. They were both in the spotlight last year when LSU triumphed over Iowa with a score of 102-85 in the 2023 NCAA Division I title game last April.

The relationship between these two basketball icons has not always been smooth. Tension arose when Clark adopted John Cena’s “You Can’t See Me” celebration during March Madness games. Reese, finding the gesture disrespectful towards other players, reciprocated the celebration during the national title game. This move drew considerable criticism towards Reese.

However, Clark quickly addressed the issue, defending Reese by stating that she didn't deserve criticism for returning the favor.

A year has passed since that fierce competition, and once again, both Reese and Clark find themselves leading powerhouse teams as we head into March. If their past performances are anything to go by, we can expect another fascinating chapter in this compelling rivalry.

As we keep our eyes peeled for their next move, one thing is certain: Reese and Clark are here to break records, make history, and redefine what it means to be a woman in sports.
