Gonzaga will face Baylor in the NCAA final after a miracle basket. Guard Jalen Suggs scores a winning triple over the horn from the middle of the court.
Guard Jalen Suggs scored a triple in overtime that ensured the victory this Saturday by 93-90 for the Gonzaga Bulldogs against the UCLA Bruins in the second semifinal of the Final Four of the men’s college basketball tournament, the so-called NCAA .
The triumph, the 35th consecutive number that Gonzaga accumulates, allows the great favorite to reach the final with an undefeated record of 32-0 and will face the Baylor Bears , who in the first semifinal beat the Houston Cougars 78-59 .
Gonzaga’s freshman Suggs unleashed the madness by pitching and scoring before the horn sounded from nearly half the court. An impossible triple. With that shot, which broke the draw forced by Johnnie Juzang, Suggs became the hero of the night and Gonzaga, who are one win away from closing a dream season.
The game, full of suspense, was decided in extra time and made valid the nickname of March Madness ( March Madness ) to the always vibrant tournament.
After the shot went in, Suggs ran to the nearly empty press line, leapt onto the table, clenched his fists, and gave a loud shout to the crowd of roughly 8,000 supporters, duly socially distanced. A Kobe Bryant-style celebration. “I have no words to define this dream,” said the player, who ended up warmly entertained by his teammates. On the court and already in the locker room.
On Monday night Gonzaga will play the final against Baylor, being the first team to appear at the event with an undefeated record since Larry Bird and Indiana State in 1979.
