During, a WNBA match between the Chicago Sky and the Indiana Fever, Caitlin Clark received a foul from Angel Reese who was trying to block her.

Rivalries are normal in sports and make the games exciting. We should appreciate these tough games and support women’s basketball.

More people are watching women’s basketball now, thanks to stars like Reese and Clark.

Difficult words: controversial (causing discussion), rivalry (being competitive), appreciate (to recognize how good someone or something is).
