LSU forward Angel Reese was named the Most Oustanding Player of the NCAA Tournament on Sunday after the Tigers beat Iowa 102-85 to claim the national title, and she created a buzz for more than just her play on the court in Dallas, Texas.

Reese started celebrating early when LSU had a clear advantage in the game’s final moments, pointing to the finger where she was ready to place her championship ring as she looked at Iowa star Caitlin Clark.

Reese also taunted Clark at the end of the game, using the “You can’t see me” hand motion made popular by wrestling legend John Cena.

Fans on social media quickly reacted to the moment late in the game, with plenty of people pointing criticism at Reese.

However, others pointed out that Clark had done something similar during a win over Louisville earlier in the tournament.

Reese answered a question on the moment in the post-game press conference.

“All year I was critiqued about who I was, I’m too hood, I’m too ghetto, y’all told me that all year,” Reese said. “But when other people do it y’all don’t say nothing. This was for the girls that look like me, speak for what they believe in, and being unapologetically you.”

Regardless of what played out late during Sunday’s contest, both players were among the best in the women’s game this season.
