Angel Reese and Shaq: The connection between these LSU basketball stars

Lindsay Schnell reports from LSU on the connection between current LSU basketball star Angel Reese and LSU basketball legend, Shaquille O’Neal.

Last year’s national championship game for the women’s NCAA Tournament was one of the highest-rated women’s basketball games of all-time. Over 12.5 million viewers tuned in to watch Angel Reese and the LSU Lady Tigers take down Caitlin Clark and the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Now, a year later, the two teams meet up in the NCAA Tournament again, so will the Hawkeyes have their revenge or will the Lady Tigers keep pressing forward in their quest for a repeat championship?

The Hawkeyes have been waiting for this moment all year. Ever since they were placed in the same region as LSU, this game has been marked on their calendars. Each of their 32 wins was in an effort to get back to this point. They remember the embarrassing performance they put on in the NCAA Finals a year ago. They remember the disrespect the Tigers showed them as the clock was running out. The Hawkeyes likely want nothing more than to avenge themselves. Of course, the Tigers won’t make it easy.

LSU knows how to get under Iowa’s skin. They’ve done it before, and most of the key players that were involved in that championship run last season are still there this time around. Led by Angel Reese, Flau’jae Johnson, and Aneesah Morrow, the Tigers are just as strong this year as they were when they won it all.

Here’s everything you need to know about this highly-anticipated rematch.

Predictions for No. 3 LSU vs. Well 1 Iowa

Action Network: LSU wins

Dano Mataya writes, “I love Caitlin Clark as much as anyone in the country, and watching her play for the last four years in an Iowa Hawkeye uniform has been a blessing and a treat. What she has done for women’s basketball as a sport is simply amazing. All that being said, size is Queen in this game, and LSU should not be the underdog in this matchup. Take Kim Mulkey and the Tigers to win outright as underdogs and head back to the Final Four.”

Fox Sports: Iowa 80, LSU 76

FOX Sports mentions that LSU is undefeated ATS this year when the team is a two-point underdog or greater. However, their model still likes Iowa in this game, giving the Hawkeyes a slight edge given their stellar 23-4 record as moneyline favorites this year.

The Athletic: LSU wins

Sabreena Merchant and Grace Raynor are picking LSU to win the game and their prediction is even backed up by The Athletic‘s analytical model, which projects a very close game between these two schools resulting in an 86-85 win for the Lady Tigers.
