Angel Reese commits flagrant foul on Caitlin Clark in Sky vs. Fever rematch

Watch as one of the WNBA’s biggest rivalries continues to burn, as Chicago Sky forward Angel Reese is whistled for a flagrant foul after making contact with Indiana Fever guard Caitlin Clark’s head while contesting a shot.

In the first matchup between the Chicago Sky and Indiana Fever since Chennedy Carter’s now infamous shove of Caitlin Clark, there was even more drama.

Towards the third quarter of a tightly contested ball game, Sky rookie Angel Reese went up to contest a layup and ended up striking Clark across the head.

Officials immediately reviewed the play and upgraded the fall to a flagrant one on Reese. There was no immediate retaliation or response by either team.

Going back to their first matchup, a game the Fever won 71-70, all anyone could talk about after was Carter’s foul on Clark that many considered a “non-basketball” play.

The discourse that followed for days was whether or not WNBA players were targeting the rookie sensation for the level of attention she has garnered.

And although Carter and others have denied any intent outside of the desire to compete and win, it hasn’t stopped supporters of Clark from seeing things differently.

The latest incident in a well-documented rivalry between Reese and Clark is sure to add more fuel to that fire. We’ll have to wait and see how WNBA fans react this time around.
