Connor McCaffrey’s Reaction to Angel Reese’s Antics During WNBA Clash

In a fresh chapter of their storied college basketball rivalry, Caitlin Clark and Angel Reese faced off in the WNBA, as the Indiana Fever clashed with the Chicago Sky. This encounter, however, did not sit well with Clark’s boyfriend, Connor McCaffrey, who had a strong reaction to Reese’s behavior during the game.

Caitlin Clark, transitioning from a stellar college career at Iowa, has found the professional arena challenging, having surpassed the 20-point mark only twice thus far. The league’s seasoned players seem keen to test her mettle, given her reputation as a top-tier talent.

The latest incident occurred in the Fever’s narrow 71-70 win over the Sky. Chennedy Carter’s hard foul on the 22-year-old Clark, followed by taunts, sparked jubilation on the bench from Reese. This display of exuberance did not go unnoticed by McCaffrey.

McCaffrey expressed his disapproval subtly on (formerly Twitter), by liking a post that read, “Angel Reese hopping off the bench to throw a parade for Caitlin Clark’s murder is crazy lol.” Despite this, he refrained from making any direct comments.

During the game, Clark appealed to the referees to review the foul, which was deemed a “common foul.” Reflecting on the incident, Clark stated, “I wasn’t expecting that. But it’s just, ‘Respond, calm down and let your play do the talking.’ It is what it is,” as reported by Chloe Peterson on X. She further remarked to Bleacher Report, “That’s just not a basketball play.”

Meanwhile, Carter dismissed any discussion about Clark, saying, “I ain’t answering no Caitlin Clark questions.”
