Final Four:

Houston vs Baylor 5:14pm CBS Saturday, April 3rd

UCLA vs Gonzaga 8:34pm CBS Saturday April 3rd.

Gonzaga remains undefeated the entire year (30-0). Pulling for UCF conference mate Houston Cougars (so I just cursed them)


Probably going to be Baylor vs Gonzaga in final. Gonzaga is amazing and fun to watch. Unstoppable.

I'm at 870 and 95.2%. I have Gonzaga and Baylor with Gonzaga taking it all. It's not looking bad right now.

That was the most exciting and thrilling game of the whole show. Flat out incredible. I was jumping up and down with the dogs in utter excited confusion. Total respect for UCLA. They played the game of their lives. But so did Gonzaga. Suggs is a star. How the hell am I supposed to go to sleep now.

What a great game UCLA and Gonzaga was.

Instant classic.

Back n forth. Goes into overtime.

So many great plays. Offense and defense.

Last second half court shot for the win!

The bank was open. Suggs is the clutch player of the tournament but you cant forget Nembhart, the UF transfer who drained that three right before to put the heat up. By the way, 8 players from UF have entered the transfer portal and Mann is going pro. They are literally without a team for next year. It was a blow to have Nembhart leave UF for what might be the only undefeated team college basketball team in history but this trend seems to have gotten worse. Great players are always kicking tires now and these coaches know how to whisper into the ears of these jealous mistresses. UF's coach, it is speculated, is in trouble. His comment was just to openly wonder who UF could poach in the portal.

This was hard to watch. I am tempted to believe that Gonzaga was just too fatigued to win this but that is not why they lost tonight. The better team won. Gonzaga could play Baylor ten times and be lucky to win one of those games. Baylor is huge and while they were making their threes, Gonzaga was struggling for make their twos.

Hard to beat a team that is 1) draining 3s, 2) blowing by you for layups or dishes when you guard the 3, 3) grabbing two or three offensive rebounds on the rare occasions when you do miss a shot and 4) shutting down your offense with their D. Baylor was too talented, too quick, and too strong. They made Gonzaga look weak, slow and lost. Nobody will remember the UCLA game in years to come. It was shown to be irrelevant. I was rooting for Gonzaga, but, they were not worthy. Hard to see where anybody could have challenged Baylor. They should have been the undefeated team coming in.

No way. I will remember the UCLA Gonzaga forever. That was pure March madness in its highest form. The championship game never seems to offer that kind of entertainment.

I agree. People certainly still remember Christian Laettner's shot to beat Ky .... and that was an Elite 8 game.

Sure, but Laettner's shot led to a championship two games later (which is why they remember it). There have been many, many great games with great closing shots that are not remembered because they didn't.
