By Sara Tidwell,


Caitlin Clark is known for her antics on the court, both in the way she celebrates plays and the way she taunts opponents.

In the first half of Iowa's women's Final Four game against South Carolina on Friday night, she left Raven Johnson all alone behind the arc, waving her off with a limp hand without making eye contact, as if to say, "I don't care about you, I'm not defending you."

Johnson did not shoot, instead passing the ball along the perimeter.

Fans are calling the disrespect from Clark to Johnson simply "beautiful" and "a cheat code" to confidence in a game like this.

They're also calling Clark "her," as in she's that woman, and saying she's "with the fans" on this one, hungry for victory.

Clark had 19 points in the first half despite picking up two fouls. Iowa led undefeated defending national champion South Carolina 38-37 at intermission.
