Caitlin Clark blushes at the mention of her scoring average in her WNBA debut. However, unlike Angel Reese, her impressive GPA leaves fans in awe, prompting them to wonder, “How does she do it?”

Caitlin Clark was bossing college both on the court and in the classroom.

The new Indiana Fever guard left the NCAA as its highest-ever scorer and has already put on a show in the WNBA, having made her professional debut on Friday night, with the Fever making her the No. 1 overall pick last month.

Clark scored 21 points in a loss against the Dallas Wings on the weekend, hitting five threes in her first game for her new team.

Fans are well aware of how dangerous she is on the basketball court, but that might not be the case regarding academics.

According to Athlon Sports, Clark posted a 3.64 GPA at Iowa, where she majored in marketing, though she’s yet to finish her degree.

“I would love to be on the Olympic team and be in Paris,” she said recently. “But that’s not up to me. I actually still need to earn my degree, too; I need to graduate college first, or else my mom might kill me.”

Marketing is no easy subject, and it should be a lot harder if you’re being the best college player in the nation by night.

Clark is keen on completing her degree before the summer so she can compete in the Olympics, and it would come as a real shock if she lets that get in her way, given her hyper-competitive nature.

Caitlin Clark and the Fever will play their next preseason game against the Atlanta Dream next Friday before beginning the regular season against the Connecticut Sun the following Tuesday.

$1.7 million NIL-valued Angel Reese breaks silence on receiving criticism during suspension: “They said my GPA was low, I was pregnant”

During a few turbulent weeks in November 2023, the world of LSU star Angel Reese was rocked by speculation about the star’s absence for four Tigers games with no official explanation.

Rumors abounded about the cause of her suspension, from poor grades, possible pregnancy to beef between her mother Angel Webb and teammate Flau’Jae Johnson’s mother, Kia Brooks.

In a recent interview with ESPN, the $1.7 million NIL-valued Reese (as per On3) revealed that she has taken note of the widespread criticism she received this season and explained why her stats have dipped.

“I want people to underestimate me,” Angel Reese said. “I’m telling you, I have everything bookmarked for the right moment when everything just falls right into my hands.”

“They said I was too worried about social media, my GPA was low, I was pregnant,” Reese said. “Yeah, my stats have gone down maybe four to five points because I’m on a way better team this year. But I’m still averaging a double-double every game. I think people don’t realize I can do 10,000 things and still be good at all of them. And I can’t wait till just everything just falls right into place.”

Angel Reese explains her grit

LSU’s Angel Reese is one of the most talked-about student-athletes in the country since leading the No. 3 seed Tigers to the national championship last year and ruffling Caitlin Clark’s feathers along the way.

Reese is a divisive figure in college basketball due to her production on the court and gritty style, which includes a tonne of trash talk aimed at opponents that occasionally rubs hoops fans the wrong way.

In a recent interview with ESPN, Reese explained why she has that edge in her game that has made her both the star she is and occasionally gets her in trouble for her actions against opponents on the court.

“I played with the boys and my brother,” Angel Reese said. “I used to win all the time. And I used to trash talk. They hated it.”

“I think that’s why I’m so hungry,” Reese said. “That’s why I’m always so competitive, have a really competitive edge. I know where I come from, back to my high school, just going into a rougher area which is Baltimore and having to kind of get it out the mud and having a chip on my shoulder.”

Angel Reese registered a double-double (10 points, 19 rebounds) in the first round of LSU’s March Madness 70-60 win against the Rice Owls.
