“LSU in Trouble”: Concerns About Angel Reese Arise as Caitlin Clark’s Rival Announces Her Return

angel & Caitlyn Clark


Interest in women’s college basketball has peaked. The Finals between LSU and Iowa in April touched the 10 million mark. This intrigue about the game is primarily drawn more from individual players. One of the big names in basketball is Caitlin Clark, whose range rivals or even surpasses Sabrina Ionescu.

However, she couldn’t get past Angel Reese during the record viewership-holding Final.  The Final could have been different if injury troubles stayed away for a player. This player had the buzz that rivals Clark and Reese had, and at one point, she was more famous than the two combined.

Is an Angel Reese vs. UConn Final incoming?

During the latest NCAA edition, UConn somehow made it to the Sweet Sixteen. They were missing their key players all season long and somehow managed to keep it all together. They entered the tournament as the second seed thanks to Lou-Lopez Sanchez, Nika Muhl, Azzi Fudd, Dorka Juhasz and Aaliyah Edwards.

This unit accomplished a lot together, considering continuous injury troubles.  However, during the Sweet Sixteen battle against Ohio State, they would have loved to have their precious Guard Paige Bueckers. In a bright piece of news for UConn and basketball fans in general, the high-scoring phenom is returning to the action now.

Bueckers averaged 20.6 points on 46.4% from deep in her freshman year. As a sophomore, there were speculations that she and Clark were going to form a three-year rivalry in the college basketball scene. But injuries got in Paige’s way.  After having right ankle surgery in 2021, UConn was careful in bringing her back. During the 2021-2022, she did make her comeback, and played in 17 games, but looked like a different player altogether.

Averaging 5.4 points fewer, her numbers were down across the boards. However, that was more so because of inefficient minutes management. Though her productivity may have dwindled, just her presence would ignite the team to the next level. Will she get back to the level of her AP Player of the Year 2020-21 season?

Of course, fans are excited about the news of her return.
