Angel Reese responded after she appeared to wave goodbye to a fouled-out MTSU player.

The No. 3 seed LSU Tigers rolled into the Sweet 16 on Sunday after a win over Middle Tennessee State, but it was a game that was much more uncertain at times than the final score would suggest.

LSU trailed by nine points in the second half before going on a furious run to win by 27. And the emotion we saw from Angel Reese and Flau’jae Johnson was a huge reason why. One sequence in particular appeared to have Reese responding on social media after the game.

In the the third quarter, Reese drew a fifth and final foul on Anastasiia Boldyreva, and as a fouled-out Boldyreva left the court, Reese could be seen waving.

The obvious assumption was that Reese was waving goodbye to Boldyreva, who had to leave the game with nine points. But after LSU’s win, Reese took to Twitter/X and appeared to address the exchange.

“clickbait everything i do keep going viral”


She called it clickbait.

Either way, Reese finished the game with 20 points and 11 rebounds as LSU heads to the Sweet 16.
