In a cover interview with “Women’s Health,” the LSU star reflected on the trash talk she and Clark exchanged last April in the national championship.

Almost one year after their “You can’t see me” taunts at the NCAA women’s championship went viral, Angel Reese has perspective about her relationship with Caitlin Clark.

“I love that we’re able to compete and still be cool after, regardless of the outside noise,” the LSU star, 21, told Women’s Health magazine in a cover story interview.

Reese added, “People even say Magic [Johnson] and Larry Bird, that era [of basketball] and how it was. If that’s who we are, then okay, cool. … I think we’re both happy about what’s going on.”

And while the rivals’ trash talk — and misguided racial implications — seemingly took center stage after LSU defeated Clark’s Iowa for the national title last April, Reese has had some time to reflect about the experience.

At the start of this year’s season, Reese stepped away for four games for a mental health break.

“Taking time for yourself is really important,” she said in December. “I feel like that’s something that was important, resetting and focusing within the team.”

Reese said at the time that she was thankful for the support she was shown, and added: “My mental health is the most important before anything, and I’m gonna make sure I’m okay before anything, because I don’t wanna cause any harm or cancer in the locker room.”

Now, as Reese navigates her off-the-court success as a NIL star, she contemplates returning for another year of eligibility next season — or declaring for the WNBA draft, where she told Women’s Health that her goal is to be among the top 5.

On the eve of Clark breaking the NCAA scoring record — the Iowa point guard needs just 8 points in Thursday night’s game against Michigan to make history — Reese is taking time to revel in her own accomplishments.

“People are going to say what they want to say, but I know how many people I have impacted in a positive way,” she told the magazine. “I don’t live with any regrets.”
