Angel Reese of the LSU Lady Tigers gestures towards Caitlin Clark of the Iowa Hawkeyes during the fourth quarter during the 2023 NCAA Women’s Basketball Tournament championship game at American Airlines Center on April 02, 2023 in Dallas, Texas.

It's the ring-finger rematch.

The most highly-anticipated college basketball matchup of the year will take place in the Elite Eight of the women's NCAA Tournament.

Caitlin Clark's top-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes will meet Angel Reese and the defending champion LSU Tigers in a rematch of last year's national championship game.

The most memorable image from that game, a 102-85 win by LSU, was Reese pointing to her ring finger in front of Clark during the fourth quarter to symbolize the championship ring the Tigers were about to earn.    

Clark, college basketball's all-time leading scorer who is set to enter the WNBA draft, is now looking to get a ring of her own.

"Anytime you have a chance to go up against somebody you lost to, it brings a little more energy," Clark told reporters Saturday after Iowa's 89-68 win over No. 5 Colorado in the Sweet 16.

"I think overall it's just going to be a really great game for women's basketball," she added.

As was last year's game between the two teams, becoming the most viewed women's college basketball game of all time with a peak of 12.6 million viewers, according to ESPN.

"I think everybody is pretty excited for it," Iowa coach Lisa Bluder said of the rematch. "Twelve million people tuned in last year to see this game. Might be the same this time. Who knows."
