First Lady Jill Biden wants Iowa to join LSU WBB in White House, Angel Reese replies

BATON ROUGE — First lady Jill Biden wants Iowa and star Caitlin Clark to be invited to the White House along with national champion LSU women’s basketball, even though the Tigers defeated the Hawkeyes 102-85 in Sunday’s national championship game in Dallas.

“I know the champions are going to come to the White House, we always do. So let’s hope LSU comes,” Biden told reporters in Denver Monday. “But you know, I’m going to tell Joe that Iowa should come too because they played such a good game.”

In response to Biden’s comments, LSU basketball star Angel Reese wasn’t keen on the idea of ​​the first lady.

“A JOKE,” Reese wrote on Twitter.

LSU’s victory on Sunday marked the program’s first-ever national championship in either men’s or women’s basketball. It was the sixth time the Tigers had scored 100 or more points in a game, as they also became the first team in women’s college basketball history to score at least 100 points in the national championship game.
