Two-time WNBA champion Kelsey Plum of the Las Vegas Aces was simply on the sidelines to take in some of the NCAA action when social media exploded on her.

Kelsey Plum was at the Final Four matchup between the Iowa Hawkeyes and UConn Huskies when cameras found her seated in the crowd.

Plum was in attendance for the game and was shown on the broadcast making faces while eating popcorn, and it didn’t take social media long to chime in with a barrage of responses.

The graphic on the bottom of the post showed one of her greatest accolades in college – John R. Wooden Award winner in 2017, which was her senior season.

Kelsey Plum goofing off and eating popcorn made social media go off and roast her for trying to be funny in an awkward way:

Tough crowd online.

As for the game she was attending, Kelsey Plum had something to say about the controversial call toward the end of the Iowa-UConn game.

UConn cut Iowa’s lead to one with 39 seconds remaining in regulation and had an opportunity to win it with 9.3 seconds after forcing a turnover. However, the Huskies were called for an offensive foul and the Hawkeyes secured the victory. It was a terrible way to end such a good game.

Kelsey Plum took to X and stated that the game should not have ended on such a call.

Along the way, the team defeated Pennsylvania in the first round followed by an upset over No. 2 Maryland. They would further shock the world with a win in the Sweet 16 against No. 3 Kentucky, via Wikipedia.

In the Elite 8, the Huskies beat No. 4 Stanford to book their ticker to the Final Four but their time came to an end against Syracuse.
