WNBA’s Angel McCoughtry fires back at RGIII


(Eric Gay/AP)

Remember when Robert Griffin III went on that passionate rant about how the Louisville women’s basketball team was overly physical during its Elite Eight victory over Baylor on Sunday night?

Well, his outrage made national news, from USA Today to ESPN.com to Shutdown Corner to Huffington Post and beyond. And that means that the women’s college basketball community is well aware of what Griffin was saying about Louisville — “for every 3 they made, they threw 6 elbows, 5 straight lefts, 4 right hooks,” for example.

And that means it was just a matter of time until someone responded. “Someone” in this case being former Louisville star Angel McCoughtry, the first female athlete in school history to have her jersey retired, the second-leading scorer for the U.S. gold-medal winning Olympic team in London, and a WNBA all-star who holds that league’s playoffs scoring record.

And she wasn’t messing around.

 

 

 

(Exploding sounds.)

Griffin, of course, responded. His first Twitter beef! So cute.
