What. A. Game.
Thanks to freshman Jalen Suggs' buzzer-beating 3-pointer, the top-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs outlasted 11-seed UCLA 93-90 in overtime. Drew Timme scored 25 points for the Zags, who held off the underdog Bruins and Johnny Juzang's 29 points in one of the best Final Four games ever.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, Gonzaga and UCLA combined to shoot 58.2%, the highest combined field goal percentage in a Final Four game since the 1985 national title game between Villanova and Georgetown (63.0%). Saturday's game also finished with 19 lead changes, the most in any NCAA tournament game this year, according to Stats Perform.
Undefeated Gonzaga will face fellow No. 1 seed Baylor in the NCAA tournament championship game on Monday.
