After the game, Reese celebrated by performing John Cena’s famous “You Can’t See Me” move, while pointing to her ring finger to symbolize the victory. While this gesture was directed at Iowa’s standout player Caitlin Clark, it was simply a way for Reese to express her excitement and joy for her team’s accomplishment.

Despite Clark’s impressive performance in the Elite Eight, where she achieved a 41-point, 12-assist, 10-rebound triple-double against No. 5 Louisville, the Tigers were motivated to prove themselves in the final game. Prior to the championship, players like Alexis Morris had called out Clark for her “disrespectful” defense against the then-undefeated No. 1 South Carolina Gamecocks in the Final Four.

However, the Tigers showed up with their A-game, as three players scored over 20 points, including reserve guard Jasmine Cameron. Reese had a fantastic game of her own, recording 15 points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals, and a block.

LSU’s historic victory marked the program’s first-ever national championship and will undoubtedly be celebrated throughout the nation. Reese and her teammates proved themselves as worthy champions and their hard work and dedication paid off in the end. Congratulations to the LSU Tigers!
