“I was waiting, I tell you I was waiting I was waiting,” Angel Reese said on ESPN, via NBA Central. “Caitlin Clark is a hell of a player for sure, but I don’t take disrespect lightly, and she disrespected Alexis (Morris), and my girls, South Carolina, they’re still my SEC girls too. Y’all not gonna disrespect them either so. I wanted to pick her pocket, but I had a moment at the end of the game, and that was just I was in my bag. I was in my moment.”
