Caitlin Clark celebrates Iowa’s March Madness win over LSU with Jason Sudeikis

Caitlin Clark’s postgame celebrations Monday included a special moment with a certain Golden Globe winner.

Moments after the Hawkeyes advanced to the Final Four in the women’s NCAA Tournament with a 94-87 win over the LSU Tigers in Albany, the star Iowa guard, 22, embraced actor Jason Sudeikis in the crowd at MVP Arena, as captured in a video circulating on social media.

The “Ted Lasso” star, who has attended Iowa games this season, could be seen speaking with Clark, who scored 41 points with 12 assists and seven rebounds in the highly anticipated March Madness matchup.

Cameras panned to Sudeikis, 48, during the game, where he could be seen mimicking Clark’s celebration move, the “you can’t see me” hand gesture made famous by John Cena.

LSU star Angel Reese, who recorded 17 points, four assists and 20 rebounds in Monday’s contest, famously trolled Clark with the move when the Lady Tigers topped the Hawkeyes in last year’s national title game, 102-85.

Clark and the top-seeded Hawkeyes will next face Paige Bueckers and No. 3 UConn on Friday, with the winner advancing to the national championship.

It remains to be seen if Sudeikis will travel to Cleveland for the Final Four and championship matchups.

He previously attended a Hawkeyes’ regular-season game in December, when he took in Iowa’s dominant 99-65 victory against Bowling Green with WNBA icon Sue Bird.

Though Clark’s WNBA future is right around the corner — she declared for this year’s draft in February and is widely anticipated to be first overall selection by the Indiana Fever — there is still plenty of work to be done.

“It’s amazing to be back in the Final Four. It’s so hard to get there, especially with how loaded this region was. We told ourselves we’re the 1-seed for a reason. We’ve earned this. We deserve to be in these moments. We’re prepared for these moments,” Clark said Monday.

“The reason we’ve been able to play such good basketball is we don’t want this to end. … We want to win two more, and I think we have the power to do that.”
